Jets take on the front-running Roos this weekend

There have been plenty of changes to the Newtown Jets playing line-up due to injuries and mid-season transfers, and the boys face a tough task in playing away to the top of the table Wyong Roos. Just remember that throughout their 109 years of history, the men in royal blue have had a reputation for pulling off upset results on the most unexpected occasions.

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
