First Half:

This was the debut ISP NSW match for the BWSE joint venture, and the match was being played at a venue that most Newtown Jets players would have been totally unfamiliar with.

BWSE kick off with Newtown defending the southern end in the first half.

BWSE 6-0.

19th min: Try to Daniel Mortimer next to the right-hand upright. Converted by Joseph Paulo (who captained the USA Tomahawks in the 2013 Rugby League World Cup).

6-all.

33rd min: Try to winger Peter Schuster 7m in from the south-east corner. Not converted.

BWSE 10-6.

Half-Time: BWSE lead 10-6.

Second Half:

49th min: Five-eighth Cameron Cullen scores in the north-west corner. Not converted.

BWSE 14-6.

In these weather conditions and on this special occasion for the home team, 14-6 could well be a match-winning lead.

Greg Matterson (Newtown’s coach) made these post-match comments: “That was a tough win. We dug deep when we most needed to”.

A valuable first-up win to the Newtown Jets in tough circumstances. Hopefully this will be a valuable team-building exercise for 2017.

Mounties v Newtown Jets

Kick-Off: 3.00pm.

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
