In 2020, many of our 2019 double-title winning stars like Siosifa Talakai, Toby Rudolf and Sione Katoa successfully made the transition to the NRL, and in 2021 we’ll unleash a new generation of future first-graders onto Henson Park.

Today is Newtown’s last training day before the Jets adjourn for a break over the Christmas and New Year period.

At this stage 13 players have signed Newtown RLFC playing contracts for 2021; several others are still involved in negotiations but are very close to signing; there are more players who will be signing contracts with Newtown after having undertaken pre-season training programs with the Cronulla Sharks up to Xmas; plus there is another group who are currently training with Newtown on a “train and trial” basis.

On top of these numbers, there will be other players from the Cronulla Sharks full-time NRL squad who will made available for selection with Newtown once the competition rounds start.

The Canterbury Cup NSW competition will receive a new sponsor’s name prior to the commencement of the 2021 season. There will be ten clubs competing in the 2021 competition. The New Zealand Warriors have entered into a partnership with the Redcliffe Dolphins in the Queensland Cup; the Canberra Raiders have decided to use their players in the Canberra Raiders Cup (Group 8) competition; and Canterbury-Bankstown and Mounties have entered into a partnership.

The full 2021 draw for Newtown’s competition will be released early in the New Year.

The Jets remain in partnership with fellow foundation club the Glebe Dirty Reds. The Glebe boys will play exclusively under the Dirty Reds name in the Ron Massey Cup in 2021.

The Cronulla-Caringbah RLFC will replace Sydney University as Newtown’s partnership club in the NSWRL Sydney Shield competition.

The well-credentialed Mick Habib, who has previously worked very effectively with head coach Greg Matterson, has returned to the Newtown Jets as an assistant coach.

The Newtown Jets RLFC extends Christmas and New Year greetings to all of our sponsors, supporters and friends as well as to the wider rugby league community.
