Newtown Rugby League Football Club
100 years and more of proud rugby league tradition
Newtown Rugby League Football Club was formed on January 8, 1908, at an overflow public meeting in the Newtown Town Hall.
The Club is very proud of its special heritage and the fact that it is the oldest Rugby League football club in Australia.
The Newtown Jets play out of Henson Park in Marrickville and are one of the marquee teams in the NSW Rugby League’s flagship competition, the NSW Cup. They are one of the best supported and most widely known teams in this competition and a Newtown home game at Henson Park on a wintry Saturday afternoon is a definitive Sydney cultural experience.
The Club remains a Rugby League proving ground - a fact well demonstrated by the number of players who have played for Newtown and gone on to success with NRL clubs.
The Jets are in their fourth year of a five-year partnership with the powerful Sydney Roosters club, whereby the Jets act as a feeder club to their NRL ally.
