Club Director, Terry Rowney, warmly thanked the Jets' many sponsors and confirmed the club's determination to lift the status and profile of the NSW Cup competition, in close cooperation with the NSW Rugby League and all the clubs competing in this second tier competition.
Newtown's website, www.newtownjets.com, was accorded high praise for the quality of its content and presentation. No Rugby League club could boast a better-presented and more informative website.
Website monitoring stats prove that the Newtown website is an extremely valuable publicity mechanism for this club and an excellent promotional showcase for our business sponsors.

A special moment
One of the unexpected highlights of the night was the very generous and touching gesture made by wildcard Newtown Jets centre and winger Damon Alley-Tovio.
"Damo" took to the stage and announced that he was donating his Grand Finalist's medal to disabled Jets supporter Anthony Rowan. The impromptu presentation won the admiration of everybody at the function and drew sustained applause from the crowd.
