Saturday’s Festival crowd will incentivise the Newtown Jets
The anticipated big attendance at the 2019 Beer, Footy & Food Festival at Henson Park on Saturday should provide the partisan atmosphere to get the Newtown Jets home against their highly-rated opponents, Canterbury-Bankstown. The Bulldogs are currently top of the Canterbury Cup NSW premiership table and the Jets are just outside of the top eight – but this adrenalin-charged occasion is sure to provide a massive boost to the Jets.
There are two curtain-raisers being played at Henson Park on Saturday, 27th July. Glebe-Burwood (the Glebe Dirty Reds) play Penrith Brothers in the Ron Massey Cup at 10.45am, and the Cronulla Sharks meet Canterbury Bulldogs in the Jersey Flegg Cup at 12.45pm.
Newtown’s match details for this Saturday are:
