The fighting spirit of Kevin Maish ….

Henson Park regular Kevin Maish has been following Newtown since the 1940’s.

He was born, raised and lives right in the heartland of traditional Bluebag and Jets territory in Probert Street, Newtown.

Kevin was spotted in Marrickville Metro during the week and was asked “how will the boys go this Saturday”?

He replied: “Newtown won’t be at full strength on Saturday and I hear that the other mob will have about 14 Manly NRL blokes playing for them”.

Kevin then added with emphasis: “That’s exactly the sort of challenge we like at Henson Park. It’s when the Newtown boys are at their best – I say bring on the Sea Eagles!”

His trusty comrade-in-arms Paul “The Race Caller” Clarke is also going to be at Henson Park on Saturday to rev the boys up.

Newtown’s team for Saturday is:

Matt Evans, Brent Anderson, Jordan Drew, Jesse Ramien, James Tuitahi, Leigh Higgins, Jason Schirnack, Kurt Dillon, Kurt Kara, Jaimin Jolliffe, Kenny Niko, Jack Williams, Jayden McDonogh.

Bench: Tepatasi Fuiavailili, Jordan Galloway, Ben Martinez-Murray, Saulala Houma.

Coach: Greg Matterson.

The Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles will be making their first-ever appearance at historic Henson Park:

Pita Godinet, Maliko Filino, Brad Parker, Jonathan Wright, Peter Schuster, Jackson Hastings, Cameron Cullen, Taniela Paseka, Joey Lussick, Darcy Lussick, Shaun Lane, Jarrad Kennedy, Billy Bainbridge.
