The Newtown Jets have retained possession of the Frank Hyde Shield for another year by virtue of being the current holders. This year’s series was tied with two drawn games, and in 2017 the two clubs each won one game and lost one game, and had identical points for and against! The full team complement is:

All tied up at North Sydney Oval as the Jets drop a valuable competition point

The Newtown Jets and North Sydney Bears drew 22-all at Henson Park back on the 5th May – and yesterday the two clubs finished up 28-all at North Sydney Oval.

The Jets led 16-4 at halftime and should have gone on with the job when they led 28-10 after 55 minutes. Newtown’s mistake rate increased and they conceded penalties as the Bears surged, drawing level with five minutes left to play. For the second year in a row the Frank Hyde Shield stays in Newtown’s possession as the Jets are the current holders.

Many thanks to the North Sydney Bears who put on a marvellous after-match function at the superbly-located The Greens in Ridge Street, North Sydney. (The Greens is an affiliate club of the North Sydney Leagues Club).
