Plenty of familiar faces for Jets fans to cheer for in the 2017 Rugby League World Cup

Just as in the 2013 Rugby League World Cup, there will be a large number of current and past Newtown Jets players participating in the 2017 tournament that gets underway on Friday, 27th October.

The Newtown RLFC was founded on the 8th January 1908 – and 109 years later this gutsy little club is still helping to take rugby league football to the world.

Here is the list of the 2017 World Cup players who either turned out with Newtown in 2017, or at some stage between the years 2005 and 2016.

Australia – Boyd Cordner

England – no Newtown representatives

France – Jason Baitieri and Mark Kheirallah

Lebanon – Ahmad Ellaz, Mitchell Mamary, Ray Moujalli and Travis Robinson

New Zealand – Isaac Liu, Brad Takairangi and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, plus Ben Gardiner (Assistant Coach)

Samoa – Fa’amanu Brown, Joseph Leilua, Joseph Paulo and Sam Tagataese

Scotland – Lachlan Stein and Luke Douglas

Tonga – Samisoni Langi, Sio Siua Taukeiaho and Daniel Tupou

Papua-New Guinea – Nene Macdonald, Rhyse Martin

Ireland – no Newtown representatives

Wales – no Newtown representatives

Fiji – Kane Evans, Taane Milne and Junior Roqica

Italy – Jayden Walker and Cameron Ciraldo (coach)

United States of America – Daniel Howard and Junior Vaivai.

In total: 27 current and former Newtown Jets players spread across 11 countries, plus one national team coach (Cameron Ciraldo, Italy) and one national team assistant coach (Ben Gardiner, New Zealand)

As accurately reported in recent issues of the Inner West Times and Inner West Courier, the Newtown Jets will definitely be participating in the 2018 NSWRL Intrust Super Premiership NSW competition. Negotiations with an NRL partnership club are close to being finalised and club members and supporters will be advised as soon as the documents are signed.
