The Tom Kirk Cup is up for grabs this Saturday when the Jets clash with the Dragons at the ‘jewel in the crown of Rugby League grounds’, the one and only Henson Park. Newtown defeated St George Illawarra 30-16 back in Round 4 but with both teams in recent good form this promises to be an enthralling decider.
Newtown will run out in a commemorative 1923 replica strip this Saturday which will also double as our 2023 Members jersey.
The inspiration for the jersey came from club historian Terry Williams, who was conducting research and discovered a series of photographs in the Sydney Mail of a 1923 NSWRL premiership match between Newtown and Eastern Suburbs. The photographs show the Newtown jumpers have a black saddle. This design was very common in the early 20th century. This is a one in one hundred years event!
These absolutely one-off player worn jerseys and socks will be available to purchase post-game [details to follow].
There’s not a better place in Sydney to spend a sunny Saturday winter afternoon so we call on all Bluebags to come and cheer on the Men All Dressed In Blue (and for this Saturday only, a dash of black).
As usual, there will be plenty of fun to be had on the DEICORP Family Hill with FREE jumping castles, face painting & pass the ball to keep the kids entertained. Ice Cream Joe’s Mr Whippy & Barista will be in attendance, next to the Main Canteen whilst Philter’s Henson Park Draught, XPA and other tasty brews are available for all the Mums, Dads and over 18s along with Kraken Black Spice Rum’s Black Mojito.
