Saturday 24th Aug
Friday evening’s match at Panthers Stadium is of critical importance to the Jets
The Jets travel to the foot of the Blue Mountains tomorrow for a rare Friday evening appointment with the Penrith Panthers. Newtown’s finals hopes took a heavy blow with last Saturday’s loss to the Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles, and the outcome of this 21st round Canterbury Cup fixture against the Panthers now takes on the status of being of vital concern.

The Newtown RLFC expresses sincere condolences to members of the Markham family on the recent passing of Mr George Markham. George Markham was a club official with the Newtown Jets in the early 1980s, and the Markham family have been renowned Newtown RLFC supporters for many years. Our thoughts are with the Markham family at this time.
