Newtown’s first trial for 2017 is only ten days away

It might be Sydney’s hottest January on record, but that hasn’t stopped the Newtown Jets from putting in a thoroughly-disciplined and well-planned pre-season training program. The Jets began their four-days-per-week regimen back in early November and their first trial match (v North Sydney at Henson Park on Saturday, 4th February) is now just ten days away.

Jets head coach Greg Matterson is heading into his tenth season in what is now the Intrust Super Premiership NSW competition, formerly known as the NSW Cup. Matterson’s coaching tenure in the top grade is a record for the Newtown club and is probably only surpassed in length by Wayne Bennett’s stint at the Brisbane Broncos from 1988 to 2008. George Ndaira, who played NRL with St George-Illawarra, South Sydney and the Newcastle Knights and has had coaching experience with the Knights, has come on board at Newtown as the newly-appointed assistant-coach.

Newtown’s strength and conditioning coach Graeme Morris is well-qualified in his specialist field and is highly regarded by his peers. His innovative strength and conditioning program that has the 2017 Jets players in great shape has attracted the attention of other NRL and Super League clubs, as well as the Melbourne Demons AFL club. Take a look at Graeme’s program for the 2017 Newtown Jets: http://insidertrainingapp.com/newtownjets

New players who have signed contracts with the Jets for 2017 include hooker Alec Bush (ex-Parramatta), centre Ben Fritz (ex-Manly-Warringah), front-rower Tepatasi Fuiava (ex-Cronulla Sharks), five-eighth Penani Manumalealii (ex-Cronulla and a Samoan international), backrower Jayden McDonogh (ex-Cronulla), centre Haydn Peacock (ex-Cronulla and AS Carcassonne XIII) and Luke Towers (ex-Roosters, Salford and AS Carcassonne XIII).

Newtown’s three trial games for 2017 are all at Henson Park and are as follows: v North Sydney, Saturday, 4th February (4pm kick off); v Mounties, Saturday, 11th February (6pm kick off); and v Wests Tigers, Saturday, 18th February (6pm kick off). The NSW Rugby League will be releasing the official ISP NSW 2017 draw later this week.
