Both teams go into Saturday’s match at Henson Park on Saturday with definite agendas – they must win this game. Newtown is in 3rd position on the ISP NSW competition table, and very little separates the teams placed between third and seventh. Newtown’s opponents Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles are desperate to stay in the race for the top eight and they have a tough draw in the remaining rounds.
