Jets narrowly beaten in opening trial game

The Newtown Jets and North Sydney Bears turned on an entertaining game in their Intrust Super Premiership trial match played at Wentworth Park on Sunday evening (17th February).

The Bears won 18-16 after leading 12-8 at half-time. The Jets pulled back to within two points with just three minutes left to play, but the conversion attempt taken from wide out brushed outside of the left-hand upright. Newtown scored four tries to three in total and both teams, while well below full strength, showed plenty of inventiveness with the football and both sets of forwards put in sustained defensive efforts.

In the second of two curtain-raisers staged as part of an annual return to Wentworth Park day, Glebe defeated North Sydney 28-12 in a Ron Massey Cup trial match. In the opening curtain-raiser, Ryde-Eastwood defeated Sydney University 40-22 in a Sydney Shield trial match.

Newtown’s next Intrust Super Premiership trial match is against Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles at the Southern Cross Group Stadium (Woolooware) next Saturday, 23rd February at 5.05pm.

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
