Newtown Jets Virtual Team List v Blacktown Sea Eagles Wed 15th July, 2020
Welcome to Round 18 of Newtown Jets Virtual Season 2020.
While we might not be able to watch Newtown Jets games live this season we can relive past glories from years gone by. As part of Virtual Season 2020, JETS TV is broadcasting classic matches featuring our opponents from the 2020 Canterbury Cup NSW draw in “Amco Cup retro-style” on Wednesday nights at 8.00pm. Our intrepid social media team will “live tweet” the game as if they had entered a time machine and want you to be part of the action.
This Wednesday, 15th July they’re back at ‘the jewel in the crown of Rugby League grounds’, Henson Park to bring you a Canterbury Cup NSW between Newtown and the Sea Eagles that was actually played on Sunday, 19th May, 2019 as part of the NSWRL’s ‘Magic Round’.
After a gut-wrenching Grand Final loss the year before, Newtown had started the season miserably winning only one of their first seven games before recording a hard fought 26-24 victory at home against the Bunnies the game prior. Similarly, Blacktown were languishing towards the bottom of the ladder. Both teams’ seasons hung in the balance going into the game.
Thanks to Biofreeze, Newtown Jets has named its team from the game. Many thanks to our Player Sponsors listed in brackets.
