First leg of the Frank Hyde Shield series this Sunday at North Sydney Oval

The Jets have named a strong side for this Sunday’s match against North Sydney – as long as the Cronulla Sharks contingent pull up healthy after Wednesday night.

 The Newtown Jets take on their fellow 1908 foundation club the North Sydney Bears in what really is a critical match for both clubs. The Jets are coming off three successive losses and Norths are by no means safe in eighth position on the Intrust Super Premiership NSW competition table.
