It’s the Beer Footy & Food Festival at Henson Park tomorrow … plus Kurt Kara reaches his 150th game with the Newtown Jets

It’s the biggest day this year at Henson Park tomorrow – we suggest you get there early!

The 2017 Beer, Footy & Food Festival is on at Henson Park on Saturday, 22nd July, starting at 12 noon and going to 7.00pm. There will be no public parking available inside the ground, so please make other parking arrangements.

One of Newtown’s finest and a genuine working-class hero, Kurt Kara, plays his 150th competition game with the Newtown Jets tomorrow. Ironically it is against a club with whom he spent some time in a development squad, the New Zealand Warriors. Kurt also played NSW Cup with Western Suburbs prior to signing with Newtown in 2011.

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
