Deicorp backs the Newtown Jets
Continuing the recognition of the tremendous sponsoring organisations who are keeping the Newtown RLFC alive in perilous times.
Deicorp has been a Newtown Jets sponsor since 2013 and they have been rock-solid in their support for Newtown’s continued place in the second-tier competition of rugby league football in Australia.
Founded in 1999, Deicorp is a family-owned development and construction group for residential, commercial and retail property.
Deicorp recognises and respects what makes communities worthwhile places to live in – and that is by supporting local projects, sporting clubs and charities that have a positive and lasting impact.
The Newtown RLFC extends birthday greetings to a magnificent old Bluebag from the 1960s – Bruce Olive, who played with Newtown from 1964 to 1968.
Bruce turns 91 on Saturday, 28th August and is the second oldest-living former Newtown RLFC first grade player.
The eldest former first grader is Kevin Considine who played with Newtown from 1952 to 1960, and who played on the wing in the 1954 and 1955 first grade grand finals.
Bruce Olive had a remarkable rugby league career, beginning with Casino in the late 1940s, then with Illawarra Western Suburbs from 1957 to 1963, four seasons with Newtown from 1964 to 1967 and finally two seasons with Dapto in 1968 and 1969.
He represented NSW Country and NSW on numerous occasions, and was chosen in the Illawarra Rugby League representative team of the century.
His senior rugby league career extended over 24 seasons and he played to 800 games of senior rugby league football.
He was a great crowd favourite in his four seasons at Henson Park, and he is universally regarded as one of rugby league’s thorough gentlemen.
Best wishes and happy birthday Bruce from everyone at the Newtown RLFC.
