2019 – The Year that the Newtown Jets Struck Gold Twice

With the end of what has been Newtown’s most successful year in rugby league since 1991 fast approaching, the club extends Christmas and New Year greetings to all of our sponsors, members, supporters, players, staff and volunteers.

Newtown’s thrilling wins in the Canterbury Cup NSW grand final and the NRL State Championship final were only a few weeks ago, but our players have been back in training for the 2020 season since mid-November. Players who have signed contracts with the Newtown Jets for 2020 include the following: Jonah Ngaronoa (winger/centre), Lachlan Scarpelli (hooker), Jackson Stewart (hooker/lock), Joshua Delailoa (winger), Jayden Millard (five-eighth), Tom Coughlan (second-row) – these are all ex-Cronulla Sharks Jersey Flegg players.

Other signings for 2020 thus far are: Brock Gray (second-rower, ex-South Sydney); Wes Lolo (front-rower), Tyla Tamou (winger/fullback); Brock Ilett (front-rower, ex-Cabramatta); Trent Toelau (halfback/lock/hooker) and Matt Stimson (second-rower), both ex-Melbourne Storm; Zac Woolford (lock/hooker, ex-Canterbury-Bankstown and Newcastle Knights); and Eddie Aiono (winger/fullback, ex-Mounties).

More Christmas merchandise information from the Newtown Jets

On 6th October 2019 at ANZ Stadium, the Newtown Jets defeated Burleigh Bears 20-16 in the NRL State Championship Final. This win effectively made Newtown the best club team (outside of the NRL competition) in Australia, New Zealand and Papua-New Guinea. Newtown centre Jackson Ferris (with the ball) is shown sprinting away for the winning try with less than ten seconds of regular time left to play, having seized upon a pin-point short kick by his team-mate Billy Magoulias. Newtown had trailed 10-2 at half-time and 16-14 going into the last ten seconds of the match. Photo: Michael Magee Photography
