Jets salvage a valuable competition point against the Warriors

Newtown drew 20-all with the New Zealand Warriors in the 12th Round Canterbury Cup NSW fixture played at Henson Park on Saturday afternoon.

The Jets led 10-6 at halftime and the second half was a thrilling spectacle as both teams threw the ball around and strove desperately to gain the two competition points.

The Warriors led 20-14 with three minutes to go but the Jets equalised through a try to centre Matt Evans and a conversion from wide out by halfback Braydon Trindall. The lively little Jets halfback nearly landed a long-distance field goal attempt in the last minute of play.

There was quite a reasonable attendance at Henson Park today despite the 1.00pm kick-off and the fact that rain had been forecast.
