The Jets visit Cessnock again as part of the NSWRL Country Round of Matches Promotional Weekend

Third-placed Newtown plays away to fifth-placed Wentworthville at Cessnock on Saturday evening (30th April).

NSWRL Intrust Super Premiership NSW – 9th Round; Saturday, 30th April 2016; Cessnock Sports Ground; Wentworthville v Newtown; Kick-Off: 4.45pm.

Referee: Matt Noyen.

Touch Judges: Benjamin Teague and John Woods.

This ISP NSW 9th Round match will be preceded at the Cessnock Sports Ground by Newcastle Rugby League district competition fixtures between the Cessnock Goannas and Lakes United.

Newtown’s team:

Arana Taumata, Travis Robinson, Jordan Drew, Matt Evans, Jacob Gagan, Josh Cleeland, Fa’amanu Brown, David Fifita, Matt McIlwrick, Jesse Sene-Lefao, Anthony Moraitis, Kurt Capewell, Jason Schirnack. Bench: Junior Roqica, Kurt Kara, Malakai Houma, Jaline Graham, Kurt Dillon. Coach: Greg Matterson.

Newtown Jets supporters need not despair about the possibility of lost gate takings – this match is officially designated as a Wentworthville home game.

Wenty is coming off a 40-18 mauling at the hands of Wests Tigers last weekend and will be primed for a much-improved performance. They are one of the most improved teams in the 2016 ISP NSW and this is a real danger game for the Jets.

Newtown is in third place on the competition table, but no fewer than five clubs are only one point behind the Jets.

Newtown’s team captain Mitch Brown is out with a knee injury.

There is a general bye next weekend (7th and 8th May) for all clubs in the ISP NSW competition. This is the annual representative games weekend and the ISP NSW rep team will be playing their Queensland equivalents, the Intrust Super Cup Queensland rep team.

Newtown’s next ISP NSW game is against the competition leaders Mounties at Henson Park on Saturday, 14th May at Henson Park, set down for a 3.00pm kick-off. This home game occasion is officially named as Ladies Day, when the Newtown RLFC pays tribute to the enormous role played by so many women in all aspects of the modern Rugby League game.
