Newtown’s Kyle Flanagan skippers the NSW Residents to a resounding victory

Newtown Jets halfback Kyle Flanagan captained the Intrust Super Premiership NSW Residents team to a comprehensive 36-20 win over Queensland Residents in the rugby league representative match played at ANZ Stadium on Sunday evening. This match was played as the main curtain-raiser to State of Origin II.

Jets second-rower Scott Sorensen had originally been named as the team captain but he was a late withdrawal. Kyle Flanagan led the team with considerable aplomb, and for good measure he converted all six of the Residents team’s tries. Flanagan had three other Newtown Jets comrades in the rep team – centre Aaron Gray, front-rower Kurt Dillon and hooker Blayke Brailey. All told, this was the largest number of Newtown players in a NSW Rugby League senior level representative team in more than one hundred years.

The NSW Residents ran up a 30-0 lead at halftime but inevitably Queensland fought back in the second half, scoring twenty points to make the final margin more respectable. The Jets had another player, centre Reubenn Rennie, named in the team but he withdrew earlier in the week because of injury.

The Newtown Jets are back at Henson Park this Saturday, 30th June, to play Wentworthville. This match will be televised live on Channel Nine and kicks off at 1.00pm.

Schofield King’s Throwback Thursday: Jets let it Slip

Most Newtown Jets supporters would have seen the black and white version of this photo of the Newtown RLFC NSWRL first grade premiership-winning team of 1943, captained by the mighty Frank “Bumper” Farrell and coached by Arthur Folwell. This colourised version has been kindly supplied by a Newtown Jets supporter named Coll who has done a number of other interesting colourisations as well.
