The Frank Hyde Shield is on the line this Sunday – and also Newtown’s place in the top eight

The Newtown and North Sydney clubs meet at North Sydney Oval this Sunday, 14th July, for the deciding match in the 2019 Frank Hyde Shield series. This game is also vital for the Jets’ finals aspirations as a loss could see them drop out of the top eight. Newtown regained their winning form against St George-Illawarra last Saturday while North Sydney won impressively against Western Suburbs.
