Another Tough Assignment for the Newtown Jets this Saturday
The Newtown Jets line up against the NSWRL Knock-On Effect NSW Cup competition leaders, the Penrith Panthers, at Henson Park this Saturday.
There’s no doubt that taking on the top-of-the-table Penrith Panthers will be a demanding encounter but there is one certainty – our Newtown Jets are sure to be inspired by the presence of another big Henson Park attendance.
Be sure to round up all your family members and friends to get along to Henson Park this Saturday afternoon to give the Jets as much support as possible for this important match.
One of the best wingers in the business, Sione Katoa, returns to the active playing lists after a lengthy period out through injury. Teak-tough back-rower Gabe Hamlin also makes a return from the injury list.
