This week’s headline photo features Jayson Bukuya, a rock-solid rugby league professional who recently announced his retirement as a player. Jayson had a long career in the NRL with both the Cronulla Sharks and New Zealand Warriors clubs for a total of 186 NRL appearances, and also 11 international rugby league appearances with the Fiji Bati.

Jayson is particularly well-remembered for his fine displays in both the 2019 Canterbury Cup NSW grand final and the 2019 NRL State Championship final victories. The Newtown RLFC extends best wishes to Jayson and his family members for the future.

We are also pleased to report that Mose Masoe continues to make good progress after suffering a very serious injury earlier this year. This update on Mose’s progress was published recently in Fox League news.

Newtown supporters would recall Faámanu Brown who gave splendid service to the Newtown Jets in the 2016 and 2017 seasons, along with extended stints in the NRL with the Cronulla Sharks and Canterbury Bulldogs. “Nu”, as he was well known, has recently signed a contract to play with the famous Featherstone Rovers club in 2021.
