Amidst a veritable cornucopia of rugby league football on Sunday, this is another vital match for the Newtown Jets.

Newtown’s 10th round encounter against Manly-Warringah’s partnership club, Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles, is a critical game for the Jets as they strive to continue to ascend the competition table. Newtown is in 11th place on 6 points while the Sea Eagles are in 12th place on 5 points. Newtown’s impressive win and good form in their last start win against South Sydney won’t count for much as they come up against the Blacktown Workers club playing for their season.
