No quarter will be given by either the Jets or the Tigers in their 16th Round showdown

Tomorrow’s Intrust Super Premiership NSW match against Wests Tigers could be the last time that Newtown plays the merged club entity, if reports that Western Suburbs are going to re-enter the second-tier level of rugby league in 2018 are correct.

Tomorrow is also the annual occasion that we invite Newtown Jets supporters from far and wide to take a crack at beating the mythical Henson Park crowd figure of 8972. That famous crowd figure was conjured up by the one and only John Lynch on a cold, wet and miserable mid-winter night at Redfern Oval in the 1990’s. As Lynchy says, “that particular attendance figure was definitely not Newtown’s final crowd at Henson Park when the Jets played Balmain on 7th August 1983. And yet I still meet people who swear blind that 8972 really was the crowd figure recorded on that day!”

Anyway, bring all your family members and friends to Henson Park tomorrow and let’s have another lash at topping that often-quoted crowd figure.

The Newtown RLFC and the Mark Hughes Foundation wish to thank everyone who supported our brain cancer fundraiser so generously. We extend special thanks to Café Nulla Nulla in Cronulla for their support. The amount raised for the Mark Hughes Foundation was $1053.

Check out Jets front-rower Saulala Houma on the YouTube Truth Booth. Big Saulala recently attained the milestone of playing 100 games with the Newtown Jets RLFC:  https://youtu.be/sFE_wsbnY-A

Some former Jets players are with teams in the UK that are enjoying good form. Jesse Sene-Lefao is playing with the red-hot Castleford Tigers in the UK Super League, while Junior Roqica is playing with the London Broncos, who are currently having a great run of success in the Kingstone Press Championship.

Congratulations also to 2016 hooker and captain Matt McIlwrick who recently had his contract with Wests Tigers extended. And what about the form of the man who began his senior rugby league career with Newtown back in 2012 and 2013, Dylan Napa, who was one of the best forwards on the field in State of Origin II on Wednesday night?

The Newtown RLFC extends best wishes to centre Jordan Drew who has decided to return to Queensland. Jordan was contracted with the Cronulla Sharks and gained selection with the NSW Intrust Super Premiership representative team in both 2016 and 2017. We thank him for his efforts with the Newtown Jets and we wish him the best of luck for the future.

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
