Jets well beaten in Canterbury Cup NSW opening round

No doubt Greg Eastwood (centre) has met many knowledgeable rugby league people in the course of his long and distinguished career in the NRL and in international rugby league. Almost certainly though he has never met two more dedicated and fair dinkum rugby league activists than Mike Shannon (left) and John “The Phantom Bluebag” Lynch (right). This impressive trio was photographed discussing “pertinent rugby league matters” at the Newtown RLFC 2019 Season Launch at the Petersham RSL Club on Tuesday, 12th March.
