2019 – The Year that the Newtown Jets Struck Gold Twice

With the end of what has been Newtown’s most successful year in rugby league since 1991 fast approaching, the club extends Christmas and New Year greetings to all of our sponsors, members, supporters, players, staff and volunteers.

Newtown’s thrilling wins in the Canterbury Cup NSW grand final and the NRL State Championship final were only a few weeks ago, but our players have been back in training for the 2020 season since mid-November. Players who have signed contracts with the Newtown Jets for 2020 include the following: Jonah Ngaronoa (winger/centre), Lachlan Scarpelli (hooker), Jackson Stewart (hooker/lock), Joshua Delailoa (winger), Jayden Millard (five-eighth), Tom Coughlan (second-row) – these are all ex-Cronulla Sharks Jersey Flegg players.

Other signings for 2020 thus far are: Brock Gray (second-rower, ex-South Sydney); Wes Lolo (front-rower), Tyla Tamou (winger/fullback); Brock Ilett (front-rower, ex-Cabramatta); Trent Toelau (halfback/lock/hooker) and Matt Stimson (second-rower), both ex-Melbourne Storm; Zac Woolford (lock/hooker, ex-Canterbury-Bankstown and Newcastle Knights); and Eddie Aiono (winger/fullback, ex-Mounties).
