Here’s some good advice from one of Newtown’s favourite forwards from last year’s triumphant Canterbury Cup and NRL State Championship teams
Big Jaimin “Jimmy” Jolliffe (pictured in possession) played with Newtown between 2016 and 2019 and was a proud and very effective member of both of last year’s title-winning teams.
Jimmy is now holding down a regular front-row spot with the Gold Coast Titans NRL team.
His advice to Newtown Jets supporters during this perilous time of the pandemic is straight forward and accurate:
“Make sure you stay safe by wearing a face mask – and as suggested below, why not purchase a Newtown Jets face mask to help make sure that my old club gets back into the rugby league action in the 2021 season!”
WEAR A NEWTOWN JETS BRANDED FACE MASK.
As with all health decisions, please consult with your trusted medical professional to determine compatibility with your personal situation if you are seeking a face mask to wear in relation to medical issues.
We make no medical claims with regard to the usage of these masks.
These are comfortable, washable and reusable face masks with 3 layers of 150 GSM protective cotton and spandex material comprising 95% cotton and 5% spandex; two black elastic straps secure it in place around the ears.
Newtown Jets face masks are available for pre-sale through the Newtown Jets clothing website:
Please use the code “facemask” to claim free postage.
Stock will arrive in mid-August 2020.
$20.00 for one face mask;
$30.00 for two.

The Newtown Jets wish Mitch all the best and here’s to a quick recovery.)
