We have an inkling that Edrick Lee, formerly with the Canberra Raiders, is going to become a cult figure at Henson Park. He is pictured here racing away for the 95 metres try that put Newtown back into the contest against Penrith last Sunday. Photo: MAF Photography

And here are all the statistics from the Penrith-Newtown match:

The Great JR turns 78:

The man who was voted as the Newtown club’s greatest junior product, the incomparable Johnny Raper, turned 78 on the 12th April.

Former Newtown Bluebags team-mates who helped John celebrate his birthday at a pleasant lunch at the Prince Hotel in Kirrawee included Tony Brown, Kevin Considine and Peter Ryan.

The late Frank Hyde always said that he regarded Johnny Raper as being the greatest Australian rugby league player he had ever seen in his lifetime.

The Newtown RLFC congratulates John on his significant birthday, and sends greetings to him and his wife Caryl.

2019 – The Year that the Newtown Jets Struck Gold Twice

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
