Glasgow’s Maiden Grrders v NRG’s Canny Belters
Arc Sports Centre
We’re packing the bus & hitting the North for maybe our toughest bout yet, as NRG take on Glasgow’s mighty Maiden Grrders. The Arc Sports Centre on Cowcaddens Road will be shaken to its foundations as these two tough teams of brawling bruisers battle it out.
Buoyed by their recent scorching home win against Granite City Roller Girls of Aberdeen, can Newcastle take it over the border score their 1st victory on Scottish soil? Or will they be dashed against the Maidens’ legendary walls of steel?
Get yourself to Glasgow for the clash of Clyde vs Tyne.

NRG have been all over the local press promoting our 1st home bout. Our press team have gone into overdrive to spread the word about Flog On The Tyne on 5th March 2011:
Tickets available for £7 on the door on the day.

NRG v GCRG, March 5, 2011, Lightfoot Centre, Newcastle
NRG 113 – GCRG 63
In the run up to the bout NRG were in training overload, the panic of a first home bout in front of friends and family meant that we worked super hard, got faster, got better, and became a solid team of battling beauties.
We took on GCRG, a team similar to us, a team that we would have to work damn hard to beat, and a team that we knew wouldn’t give us an easy home win (even if we asked them REALLY nicely). The GCRG girls wore red, and wore lots of face paint. NRG wore black and lots of sparkly gold.
