Everyone’s welcome to Newtown’s Pride and Diversity Day at Henson Park on Saturday, 8th June

There is no rugby league club anywhere more closely associated with the concept of “ä fair go all round” than the Newtown Jets RLFC.

Saturday’s Pride and Diversity Day pays tribute to the contribution made by the LGBTIQ community to the Newtown Jets and to inner-western Sydney.

The overall theme of the day is “everyone is welcome” which confirms that Newtown is the inner-west region’s favourite rugby league  team, and that everyone is welcome and respected at Henson Park.

The Jets face up to another important Canterbury Cup fixture against a very strong Wentworthville team, which has a number of Parramatta NRL contracted players in its ranks.

Details of Saturday’s game:
