Jets take on the front-running Roos this weekend

There have been plenty of changes to the Newtown Jets playing line-up due to injuries and mid-season transfers, and the boys face a tough task in playing away to the top of the table Wyong Roos. Just remember that throughout their 109 years of history, the men in royal blue have had a reputation for pulling off upset results on the most unexpected occasions.
