Newtown Jets back in training for the 2021 season

The nightmare that was the Canterbury Cup 2020 rugby league season is nearly behind us and the Newtown Jets pre-season squad had their first training session on Monday, 16th November.

Head coach Greg Matterson (heading into his 14th season as head coach) and club CEO Stuart McCarthy were kept busy with paperwork and issuing strict instructions concerning Covid-compliance training requirements.

The Canterbury Cup NSW competition naming rights deal expired at the end of the (cancelled) 2020 competition, and the NSW Rugby League has advised that a new naming rights competition sponsor will be announced prior to the commencement of the 2021 competition.

There will be more news about training developments in the upcoming weeks.

Newtown’s Ron Massey Cup partnership club the Glebe Dirty Reds have snared more silverware before the end of their successful 2020 season.

The Dirty Reds won the 2020 NSWRL Challenge Cup knockout competition, and they were defeated 17-16 by the Maitland Pickers in the grand final of the 2020 NSWRL President’s Cup. Last Saturday at Woy Woy Oval the Dirty Reds took out the Central Coast Rugby League 9s tournament against the Wyong  Roos. Team coach Aaron Zammit jokingly said he had loaded up the Dirty Reds team with as many Fijian players as possible. One player who is well remembered by Newtown Jets supporters and who turned out with the Dirty Reds was the hard-running backrower Junior Roqica.

 2021 Newtown Jets memberships will be available soon. Watch this space!

On the merchandise front, a new Newtown Jets t-shirts (a joint production with the famous Young Henrys brewery) will soon be advertised on the Newtown RLFC website.
