News on Newtown Jets alumni:

David Fa’alogo began his Australian rugby league career with Newtown back in 2003 – and he ended his playing days with the Ipswich Jets in the Intrust Super Cup Qld last weekend with a win against Wynnum-Manly, and by kicking a conversion right on fulltime.

Several former Newtown Jets featured in the recent Queensland Rugby League annual awards – Jonathon Reuben was the ISC Qld top try-scorer for 2016; Rhyse Martin was named as a second-rower in the ISC Qld team of the season; and Ryley Jacks finished high up in the voting figures for the ISC Qld player of the year.

2019 – The Year that the Newtown Jets Struck Gold Twice

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
