THROW BACK THURSDAY – PROVING THE POINT TO MOUNTIES AT MOORE PARK

PROVING THE POINT TO MOUNTIES AT MOORE PARK

Newtown wins against Mounties have come few and far between. Since entering the second grade in 2012 the Mulga have won 13 of the 17 fixtures between the two clubs. But at Allianz Stadium in 2014, it was Newtown who emerged victorious in a memorable encounter.

Playing the Round 12 NSW Cup Match of the Day at before the Fox Sports cameras, Newtown conceded a try after 5 minutes. Josh Davis got one back for the Jets but two more meat pies saw Mounties lead 18-4 after twenty minutes. For Jets fans enjoying the unusual treat of watching at home on TV, there seemed plenty of reason to change the channel. As Rex Mossop used to say, it was like déjà vu all over again.

The game turned late in the first half. Brad Barrett charged down a kick, regathered possession and made a break. In the end of the ensuing set of six, backrower David Harris chased down his own kick to score Newtown’s second try. A Tautau Moga try in the 38th minute put the Jets within four points at the break. More importantly, the momentum was with Newtown.

The Jets’ second half ranked was one of its best performances of the season. An 85% completion rate and favourable 6-1 penalty count laid the platform for a memorable win. Newtown scored five tries to nil in the second half. Matt Evans nabbed the first of these, which levelled the scores. Newtown then ran rampant, with tries to Brett Lane (57th minute), Matt Evans (62nd minute), Jonathon Reuben (71st minute) and Josh Davis (75th minute) giving the Jets a 36-18 victory. Many of Newtown’s eight tries were scored out wide which accounted for only two conversions being registered on the scoreboard.  

Coach, Greg Matterson noted praised the Jets forwards for their controlled aggression and making huge gains in field position for the backs to capitalise . David Harris had an outstanding match, and others to get special mention were Heath L’Estrange, Kurt Kara, Matt Evans and Josh Davis.

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
