Disturbing news from England that the former Newtown Jet Grant Millington is likely to undergo heart surgery. Grant played with Newtown in 2006 and 2007, and has also played with the Sydney Roosters, Canterbury-Bankstown, Cronulla-Sutherland and the UK club Castleford. The proposed surgery is to correct a heart murmur. Fortunately his condition is not thought to be life threatening and he hopes to resume playing in 2017. Everyone at the Newtown Jets wishes Grant and his family all the best for the future.

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
