Jets pay the price for sub-standard second half

The Newtown Jets dropped valuable competition points when they lost 26-24 to Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles in the Canterbury Cup match played on Saturday at Lottoland (Brookvale Oval).

Newtown led 18-4 at halftime, and increased this lead to 20-4 early in the second half. The Jets paid heavily for a poor second half completion rate, the concession of several penalties and missed scoring chances. The Sea Eagles ran down Newtown’s lead and scored a converted try in the 77th minute to take the lead for the first time in the game.

The Jets weren’t helped by a run of injuries that left them with one replacement on the bench for most of the second half. The loss leaves Newtown in tenth place on the competition table, but still with the strong chance of securing a semi-finals place with four rounds remaining.

The statistics of the match show that the Jets completed at 89% in the first half and at 65% in the second. Newtown had 59% of possession in the first forty minutes and 40% in the second. Blacktown Workers had a gigantic forward pack that did not need to be invited into the contest as they were in the second half of the match.

Newtown plays Penrith at Panthers Stadium next Friday, 9th August at 5.40pm. This match is a curtain-raiser to the Penrith Panthers-Cronulla Sharks NRL fixture.
