Jets winning sequence comes to an end

The Newtown Jets recent march up the Canterbury Cup NSW competition table hit a major obstacle at ANZ Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The Canterbury Bulldogs, the defending premiers from 2018, turned on an impressive display in seeing off the Jets by 40-28, and have moved into first place on the competition table after 15 rounds.

The Jets came up against a well-drilled and in-form Bulldogs team that effectively shut Newtown out of the game in the first half . The Bulldogs dominated possession and field position and ran up a 24-10 lead by halftime. The Jets first half tries were scored by on-debut centre Tyrone Phillips and fullback Will Kennedy.

Newtown hit back early in the second half through a second try to Kennedy, but Canterbury reasserted control and extended their lead to 40-16 with ten minutes left to play. The Jets competed gamely to the end and scored two more tries before fulltime. Second-rower Siosifa Talakai and halfback Braydon Trindall were the try-scorers late in the second half.

Newtown’s best players were Greg Eastwood, Siosifa Talakai and Billy Magoulias in the forwards and Jack A. Williams and Will Kennedy in the backs.

The Jets return to their Henson Park headquarters next Saturday, 6th July, when they meet St George-Illawarra in the 16th round of the Canterbury Cup NSW competition. This match is timed to start at 3.00pm.

Kick-Off: 3.00pm.
This is the deciding match for the 2019 Tom Kirk Cup.

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
