It’s Ladies Day at Henson Park this Saturday – plus the Jets take on the competition front-runners, Mounties
It’s free entry to all the ladies at Henson Park this Saturday, when the Newtown RLFC pays tribute to the enormous role played by so many women in modern-day rugby league. There will be free bubbly and nibbles available in front of the grandstand on Saturday for all the girls 18 and over. There will also be a special fund-raiser for the St Vincent de Paul Elsie Refuge in Dulwich Hill, as described in this link: https://www.vinnies.org.au/page/Find_Help/NSW/Domestic_and_family_violence/Elsie_Women_s_Refuge/
The Newtown Jets face up to top-of-the-table Mounties, the Canberra Raiders partnership club in the Intrust Super Premiership. Newtown beat Mounties 34-20 when they met in Round 10 back on the 12th May, and the outcome of Saturday’s match is of vital importance to both teams as they head towards the business end of the season.
