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.

NSWRL Major Competitions Update

The NSW Rugby League has advised that the Knock-On Effect NSW Cup has been suspended for a further two weeks, up until and inclusive of the weekend of the 31st July/1st August at least.

This means that Newtown’s projected home game against Western Suburbs on the 24th July has been suspended.

The Newtown Jets have a bye on the weekend of the 31st July/1st August.


The Newtown RLFC has tackled the COVID-19 outbreak by sharing their storied history throughout a number of small towns in regional NSW and Queensland.

You can read all about this act of generosity in this heart-warming, must-read article by Margie McDonald, courtesy of the NSWRL website:

Former Newtown Jets ace halfback Jamie Soward discusses the best five tries scored in the Knock-On Effect NSW Cup competition so far this year.

As it happens, two of the nominated tries were scored by a certain inner-western NSWRL 1908 foundation club:

The 2021 English Rugby League Challenge Cup Final was played early this morning Australia time between St Helens and Castleford, in what was a genuine War of the Roses Lancashire v Yorkshire showdown.

There were four former Newtown Jets players named in the Castleford Tigers squad: backrower Grant Millington, centre Cheyse Blair, front-rower Jesse Sene-Lefao and winger Sosaia Feki.

Grant Millington is in his tenth season at Castleford and is regarded as one of the best ball-playing forwards in the English Super League competition.

Here’s an article about the Castleford RLFC:
