Jets face-masks are still the best means of protecting your health!
Please take the advice of Dr. Robert Redfield (Director of the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention) who is adamant that using face masks are a more effective protection against coronavirus that any of the proposed vaccines that are all still a long, long way and time from being made available.
When you buy a Newtown Jets-branded face mask, you are maximising your own protection – plus you are making a valuable contribution to ensuring that the Newtown Jets will be back on the rugby league field in the 2021 season.
Newtown Jets face masks (as worn by rugby league greats like Will Kennedy and Billy Magoulias) are available through the Newtown Jets clothing website: www.newtownjetsclothing.com.au
This week’s lucky Members Badge Draw winner was Darren Cook, membership number 385.
The Glebe Dirty Reds narrowly lost the NSWRL President’s Cup grand final, played at BankWest Stadium last Sunday. The Dirty Reds lost to Maitland 17-16, after having led 10-6 midway through the second half. It was a high standard game and the NSW Rugby League hierarchy would have been impressed with the energy and determination of both sides, with the result being in doubt right to the final siren.
The Newtown RLFC formally congratulates our partnership club the Glebe Dirty Reds, in what has been a tremendous season for our inner-western Sydney neighbours and fellow 1908 foundation club. Earlier in the season, the Dirty Reds had won the NSWRL Challenge Cup (a state-wide knockout competition) when they belted Wentworthville 53-16 in the Challenge Cup Final.
We send best wishes to our NRL partnership club, the Cronulla Sharks, in their elimination semi-final against the Canberra Raiders on Saturday evening. There are 11 players with Newtown Jets playing experience named in the Cronulla Sharks 17-man squad. Congratulations again to front-rower Daniel Vasquez who made his NRL debut with the Sharks last weekend.
That everywhere man John Trad featured on the popular Channel 9 Footy Show last Sunday. The show paid special attention to John’s remarkable fund-raising efforts for the Jets by way of his sponsored laps of Henson Park on his trusty penny-farthing bicycle. You can deposit your pledged amount or your donation into Newtown Jets RLFC Ltd Sydney Mutual Bank BSB 611 001 Account 100243173 REF: Laps, and help keep the Jets Flying.
The Laps with Traddy program is a fundraiser to raise money to support the Newtown Rugby League Football Club.
Also on the same Footy Show, former Newtown Jets player Phil “Gus” Gould was in top form, urging all supporters to stay solid with the Jets through these perilous times. Phil gave some very generous promotion to both Newtown books that are currently for sale (Through Blue Eyes and Taking It To The Streets) as well as the wide range of Newtown Jets clothing and merchandise.
