The Newtown Jets might not have taken out the NSWRL Knock-On Effect NSW Cup premiership in 2022, but the Boys in Royal Blue did win the Minor Premiership for the first time since re-entering the second-tier level of rugby league in Australia back in 2000.

The Minor Premiership-winning team is pictured above after their thrilling drawn game against Canterbury-Bankstown, played at Henson Park on Saturday, 27th August 2022.

The Newtown Jets of 2023 will resume their pre-season training program on Tuesday, 10th January.
