Newtown Jets Virtual Team List v NZ Warriors Wed 3rd June, 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 encounters featuring our opponents from the 2020 Canterbury Cup NSW draw. With the return of NRL live matches on Saturday afternoon, we’re going full-on “Amco Cup retro-style” and will now show you games 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, 3rd June they’re travelling to the foot of the mountains to bring you a momentous NSW Cup Elimination Semi-Final encounter between the Newtown Jets and NZ Warriors in a match that was actually played on Sunday, 11th September 2016.
Newtown went into the game as underdogs as it was expected that the Warriors with the larger number of players with NRL experience would overpower the Jets. So be sure to tune in at 8.00pm, Wednesday, 3rd June to JETS TV www.newtownjets.com or www.facebook.com/newtownrlfc and follow us on www.twitter.com/newtownrlfc to see what unfolds.
