Newtown Jets Virtual Team List v St George Dragons Wed 10th 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 TVis broadcasting classic matches 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, 10th June they’re travelling to the hallowed turf of the Sydney Cricket Ground to bring you a NSWRL First Grade ‘Match of the Day’ between Newtown and St George that was actually played on Saturday, 11th May 1974.
Newtown had an unenviable record of only having beaten the Dragons three times in their last thirty-six encounters dating back to 1957. Two of these wins were in 1973 when the Jets won the coveted NSWRL Club Championship including the famous 1-0 victory at the same ground almost a year to the day before.
Newtown had started the 1974 season with five wins from their first six games and went in to the game full of confidence.
Newtown Jets has named its team from the game. Many thanks to our Player Sponsors listed in brackets.
