With the COVID-19 lockdown still in full swing, we’ve been poring through the Newtown Jets archives recently.

Here’s the latest gem we’ve unearthed – a clash with North Sydney Bears at NorthPower Stadium circa 2000.

The highlight of the link below is the magnificent midfield break by that Jets cult figure from 2000, Mark Tookey:

The Toulouse Olympique RLFC is currently undefeated in the Betfred RFL Championship (Second Division) competition after disposing of their nearest and fiercest rivals, Featherstone Rovers, last weekend.

There are a lot of familiar names in the Toulouse Olympique squad that gives this promotion-chasing club a real Henson Park flavour.

The former Newtown Jets players playing for Toulouse Olympique are:

Remi Casty, Jonathon Ford, Mark Kheirallah, Joseph Paulo, Dominique Peyroux and Junior Vai Vai.

Having six former players in the one French rugby league club is surely a Newtown Jets record!

Another former Jet – Hep Cahill – who played with great distinction for Newtown between 2006 and 2008, and who later played nearly 200 games with Widnes in the Super League competition, is currently the non-playing coach of the Sarina Crocodiles in the Mackay district rugby league competition in North Queensland.

Here’s an interesting foray into Newtown’s past with this intriguing photo originally supplied by the rugby league historian, Terry Williams.

This photo from 1967 shows the high-performance Australian Heavyweight and Commonwealth Light-Heavyweight boxing champion Bobby Dunlop leading a group of Newtown Bluebags on a training run through Centennial Park.

John Lynch advises that Bobby Dunlop was living in Marian Street, Enmore around the time this photo was taken.
