The Newtown RLFC regrets to announce the recent passing of a long-time club sponsor, supporter and loyal friend – Bill Elliott. Bill had many friends in Newtown Jets circles and he was always a popular figure at games and club functions. He will be greatly missed. Our sincere condolences to his wife Bev and son Brett. His funeral service is to be held on Tuesday, 9th May at the South Chapel, Eastern Suburbs Memorial Park, Botany.

With the various representative games being played this weekend, for the first time in several years Newtown isn’t represented in the Cook Islands national rugby league team. The Kukis play Papua-New Guinea at Campbelltown Stadium this Saturday, 6th May at 3.00pm. In the 2013 Rugby League World Cup tournament, there were no less than eight players in the Cook Islands squad who had played for Newtown at some stage of their careers. The first person to correctly name any five of those eight players will receive an item of 2017 Newtown Jets merchandise. Please send your email answers to: jets@newtownjets.com
