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).
