Jets defy the form guide with decisive win over Dragons

Newtown halfback Braydon Trindall scored three tries and kicked six goals, as he helped the Jets to a hard-fought 36-22 upset victory over the fourth-placed St George-Illawarra Dragons at WIN Stadium, Wollongong on Sunday afternoon.

The Dragons had been tipped to win easily against the Jets, but Newtown’s emphatic third win a row will send out danger signals to all of their Canterbury Cup opponents. The Jets led 20-10 at halftime in this match and were well in control when they extended their lead to 36-10, with twenty minutes still to play. The Dragons scored two more tries but never looked likely to run down Newtown’s lead.

Despite Newtown’s comfortable winning margin, this certainly was a hard-fought match. The Dragons fielded a huge forward pack and had a lot of strike-power in their backline. In addition to Trindall’s three tries, Jets second-rower Teig Wilton, centre Matt Evans and winger Sione Katoa claimed one try each, with Trindall landing five conversions and one penalty goal.

The Newtown Jets are back at Henson Park next Saturday, 1st June when they meet the New Zealand Warriors. This 12th round Canterbury Cup NSW commences at 1.00pm.

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
