It’s a vital Intrust Super Premiership round for both the Jets and Penrith at Henson Park on Saturday

The Jets take on the Panthers at Henson Park on Saturday – and they will be motivated by what happened back on the 25th June.

Both teams will be fielding changed line-ups from when they last met five weeks ago.

Tomorrow at Henson Park will also see the inaugural Beer, Food and Footy Festival where the very best of Inner-West craft breweries and niche food outlets will be operating on the Henson Park hill. This is a terrific innovation by the Newtown RLFC as the club continues to establish strong links with the boutique businesses and entrepreneurs that are making inner-western Sydney such a special place to be part of.

For more information on tomorrow’s Festival, check out this link:
