Farewell to Ray Blacklock

The Newtown RLFC regrets to announce the recent passing of the former Newtown Jets winger and fullback Ray Blacklock.

Ray played with the Newtown Jets in 1981 and 1982, including the famous 1981 NSWRL Grand Final between Newtown and Parramatta. He played 31 games for Newtown in those two seasons and scored 13 tries.

He also played with Penrith between 1976 and 1980, and finished his rugby league career with the Canberra Raiders in 1983 and 1984.

Newtown supporters of the early 1980s will recall Ray’s dashing wing play and the thrilling moments when he and fellow wingman John Ferguson linked up in midfield to create some spectacular tries.

Ray was 65 and died following a long illness.

The Newtown RLFC extends sincere condolences to Ray’s family and to his former team-mates.

Most Newtown Jets supporters would have seen the black and white version of this photo of the Newtown RLFC NSWRL first grade premiership-winning team of 1943, captained by the mighty Frank “Bumper” Farrell and coached by Arthur Folwell. This colourised version has been kindly supplied by a Newtown Jets supporter named Coll who has done a number of other interesting colourisations as well.
