The Newtown Jets will be looking to maintain the impetus gained from last Saturday’s close win against Wests Tigers, when they play Newcastle Knights at Southern Cross Group Stadium on Saturday, 1st April. The Knights are coming off a win against Wentworthville and need to be treated with the utmost respect. They have several players returning from injury and have named a formidable squad. For all the Sharks-contracted players in Newtown’s squad, this is a genuine home game for them. This match will be televised live on Fox Sports from 12.40pm, and big Sam Tagataese is to be interviewed at 11.10am.
