Jets to renew acquaintances with the Parramatta Eels


The Newtown Jets will take on Parramatta in round three of the 2021 Knock-On Effect NSW Cup this Saturday afternoon at Bankwest Stadium.

It will be the first time since 2007 that the Jets and Eels have played in the same competition, allowing that the 2020 Canterbury Cup only lasted one round.

Wentworthville served as Parramatta’s partnership club in the variously-named second tier competitions that existed between 2008 and 2019.

Newtown was beaten 20-19 by Parramatta in golden point extra time in the 2006 NSWRL Premier League grand final.

Saturday’s match is a curtain-raiser to the NRL fixture between Parramatta and the Cronulla Sharks at 7.35pm.


Saturday’s match details are:

Schofield King’s Throwback Thursday: Jets let it Slip

Most Newtown Jets supporters would have seen the black and white version of this photo of the Newtown RLFC NSWRL first grade premiership-winning team of 1943, captained by the mighty Frank “Bumper” Farrell and coached by Arthur Folwell. This colourised version has been kindly supplied by a Newtown Jets supporter named Coll who has done a number of other interesting colourisations as well.
