It’s all happening at Leichhardt Oval on Saturday, 23rd July … Robbie Farah has been named in the Wests Tigers ISP NSW team to play Newtown at 3.00pm.

There’s going to be plenty of media attention surrounding tomorrow’s Wests Tigers-Newtown match at Leichhardt Oval – what might the crowd be if the game was at Henson Park?

Today’s Daily Telegraph (22nd July) has highlighted Newtown Jets hooker Kurt Kara and the match on the back page (p 112), and also on page 106. Dean Ritchie has given Kurt and the game extensive coverage, along with a second photo (on p 106) of the long-serving Jets clubman.

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
