Jets head coach Greg Matterson achieves a most significant coaching milestone this Saturday

Newtown’s head coach Greg Matterson will be in charge of the Jets for the 200th time in the NSW Cup/Intrust Super Premiership NSW this Saturday.

Greg was appointed as the club’s NSW Cup head coach in 2008 and he has steered the Jets to a premiership in 2012 and a Grand Final in 2008, as well as several other finals appearances. To reach 200 games as head coach with the one club in what is a high standard, senior level of Rugby League is an extraordinary achievement and we all wish him well in his 9th season as head coach with the Newtown Jets. His coaching record prior to this Saturday is: 199 games for 109 wins, 8 draws and 82 losses.

This Saturday’s away game at Cessnock to the Newcastle Knights will be a difficult assignment. The Jets have not won an away game in Newcastle or the Hunter region since 2008 – but this Saturday seems to be as good a time as any to smash this non-existent hoodoo!
