The University of Rugby League makes its return – and this time the focus is going to be on the media

There are several estates that make up the Rugby League realm: The first estate is the players, the second estate the officials and the third estate the fans. The fourth estate is the press.

Newtown Rugby League Football Club proudly presents…

THE UNIVERSITY OF RUGBY LEAGUE PART 2 – THE FOURTH ESTATE:

In 1981 Warren Ryan, Phil Gould and Ken Wilson were dubbed the University of Rugby League by their colleagues and peers for the foresight with which, over post-game and training beverages, they analysed the game and where it might be headed. The University of Rugby League Part 1 brought together these pre-eminent thinkers of Rugby League’s modern era for an amazing night of robust Rugby League discussion.

This time we call upon the game’s fourth estate to provide more of the same and prove they are the guardian of the fans and a watchdog on the activities of players and officials.

So join the Jets and some of the game’s finest scribes and commentators for a fascinating evening of hard-hitting Rugby League commentary, anecdotes and analysis, reminiscing and anything else that unfolds in between.

This will be an event NOT to be missed.

Updated information on the availability of Newtown Jets merchandise

Big Saulala Houma played with the Newtown Jets from 2012 to 2017 and was a member of Newtown’s 2012 NSW Cup premiership-winning team. These days Saulala is a rampaging front-rower for the Wagga Kangaroos RLFC down in Group 9 in southern NSW. Saulala features on the front cover of the updated Newtown Jets club history, Taking It To The Streets – The Second Life of the Newtown RLFC. Author of the book and Jets Director Glen “Bumper” Dwyer was in Wagga last Friday to present Saulala Houma with a copy of the book.

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
