Australia’s first rugby league club heads into another grand final this Sunday
The Newtown Jets and Wentworthville clash in the inaugural Canterbury Cup NSW grand final on Sunday at Bankwest Stadium.
The match is in fact Wentworthville’s final appearance in the Canterbury Cup NSW, as they are leaving the competition at the completion of this season. The Parramatta club intends to field its own team in the Canterbury Cup NSW from 2020 onwards.
Oddly enough, this was the same situation with the Balmain club in 2012, with the grand final of that year being the Balmain Tigers final appearance in what was then the NSW Cup competition. Newtown supporters would well recall that the Jets won that grand final 22-18.
The winner of Sunday’s inaugural Canterbury Cup NSW premiership title will go on to play the Queensland Intrust Super Premiership winners on NRL Grand Final day at ANZ Stadium on Sunday, 6th October.
This Sunday’s match details are:
