Newtown Jets Virtual Team List v Penrith Panthers Wed 8th July, 2020
Welcome to Round 17 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, 8th July they’re travelling to Leichhardt Oval to bring you a NSWRL ISP Preliminary Final between Newtown and Penrith that was actually played on Saturday, 15th September, 2018.
Penrith were Minor Premiers and the defending 2017 Premiers whilst the Jets finished in 3rd place on the competition table. Whilst going down narrowly to the Dragons in week one of the play-offs, Newtown bounced back sweeping aside Mounties 34-16 in the elimination semi-final played at Kogarah Oval the following weekend to set up a mouth watering showdown against the competition favourites from the foot of the mountains who were on a thirteen game winning streak.
