The Newtown Jets Canterbury Cup resurgence continues apace

The Newtown Jets claimed another impressive scalp in the Canterbury Cup NSW competition, when they defeated second-placed Mounties by 34-20 on Saturday afternoon at the Aubrey Keech Reserve, Hinchinbrook.

The Jets had a tight grip on this result when they ran up a 22-4 lead by half-time, with the tries being scored by winger Sione Katoa, halfback Braydon Trindall, front-rower Jimmy Jolliffe and second-rower Josh Carr. Newtown increased this lead early in the second half by way of a sensational long-distance try to Sione Katoa.

Mounties had a bigger share of possession in the second half and pulled back to trail 28-14 with eighteen minutes left to play. Jets hooker Craig Garvey and lock Billy Magoulias combined to lay on a superbly-worked try that took Newtown out to a 34-14 lead, a points advantage that was unlikely to be run down in the time remaining.

Billy Magoulias, Jimmy Jolliffe and Scott Sorensen were the best of an effective Newtown forward pack, while Braydon Trindall, Ronaldo Mulitalo and Sione Katoa were the best of the backs.

There is a general bye in the Canterbury Cup NSW competition next weekend (22nd/23rd June). Newtown’s next game is against the in-form Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs on Sunday, 30th June at 1.50pm.

ANZ Stadium

Canterbury-Bankstown v Newtown

Kick-Off: 1.50pm.

This match will be a curtain-raiser to the Bulldogs v Sharks NRL fixture at 4.05pm.

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
