A Newtown RLFC news update plus more information about Jets clothing and merchandise

The runaway locomotive called Sifa …

One of Newtown’s many high-performance forwards from the 2019 season, Siosifa (Sifa) Talakai, is making a great impression with the Cronulla Sharks NRL squad. In this article from the Sports News website, Sifa credits his 2019 season with the Jets in helping to re-energise his rugby league career:   https://www.sportingnews.com/au/league/news/nrl-cronulla-sharks-siosifa-talakai-i-actually-wanted-to-give-rugby-league-up/1mcf9vzgft19n1kwdbjnpxrky4

Changes to the NSWRL President’s Cup draw …

The NSWRL President’s Cup competition gets underway this weekend. The addition of two more clubs, the Thirroul Butchers and Western Suburbs (Illawarra), necessitated a reshaping of the competition draw.

The Glebe Dirty Reds (Newtown’s partnership club) home games now are:

Saturday, 25th July, versus North Sydney at Henson Park at 3.00pm.

Sunday, 2nd August, versus Wentworthville at Henson Park at 2.00pm. (This match will also be the Final of the 2020 NSWRL Challenge Cup, worth a tidy $15K to the winner!)

Sunday, 6th September, versus Western Rams at Henson Park at 2.00pm.

Sunday, 13th September, versus Maitland Pickers at Henson Park at 2.00pm.

There is now a two-week finals series with the venue for the Grand Final to be confirmed at a later date.

Courageous Mose continues to make progress …

Former Newtown Jets, Sydney Roosters, Penrith, St George-Illawarra, St Helens and Hull Kingston Rovers forward Mose Masoe’s recovery progress continues to inspire.

This latest video update from the Hull KR Robins shows the big fellow taking several unassisted steps:  https://www.sportingnews.com/au/league/news/mose-masoe-walking-video-injury/8dge130ka7621305bx24gggm5
