Danger game for the Jets this Sunday as the finals get closer

Newtown beat Wentworthville 50-24 when they last met at Henson Park on June 30th, but that result counts for absolutely nothing when the two clubs clash again at Ringrose Park this Sunday.

The Jets must win and win well (for points for and against purposes) as they strive for a top four finish in the 2018 Intrust Super Premiership competition.
