Both the Jets and Magpies are fighting for a finals place this Saturday
The Newtown Jets and Western Suburbs Magpies clubs head into Saturday’s 23rd round Canterbury Cup confrontation with a place in the competition’s top eight on the line. The Jets are in 7th position on 21 points and Wests are in 10th place and only two points behind on 19. In fact second tier rugby league doesn’t get any better than this – two foundation clubs, both 111 years old and with amazing club histories, shaping up for a match that may well decide which of these two clubs will make the finals.
On top of this, Saturday’s game is the deciding match in the 2019 Tom Raudonikis Cup series (the Magpies are one-up having beaten Newtown 32-22 back on the 28th April).
Please note the early kick-off time of 12.45pm; this match is being televised live on the Fox League channel).
