Penrith vs. Newtown
Saturday, 8th May, 1pm
A match that helped to determine Newtown’s progress in the 2019 Canterbury Cup competition
Welcome to another round of the Newtown Jets Virtual Season 2020.
We continue with our “Amco Cup retro-style” Wednesday night presentations of a match selected from Newtown’s past.
This Wednesday, 15th July, the Jets are back at Henson Park to bring you a match against Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles (Manly-Warringah’s partnership club) that was actually played on Sunday, 19th May 2019 as part of the NSWRL’s Magic Round promotion (whereby triple-headers of Canterbury Cup fixtures were played at selected venues).
Remember that the Jets began 2019 with some fairly ordinary performances and they headed into this tenth Round game with two wins, six losses and a bye. Their opponents were also close to the bottom of the table, so both club’s seasons hung in the balance going into this game.
