Schofield King’s Throwback Thursday: Jets too hot for Saints

Seeing as 2021 marks 40 years since our club’s remarkable charge to the 1981 NSWRFL Grand Final, this year Schofield King’s Throwback Thursday will focus exclusively on that season.

Each week we’ll revisit the fixture from the corresponding round in a series of articles that we hope will take our long-time fans on a fun journey down memory lane, while also educating our newer fans on our club’s illustrious history.


Round 11

After their shock loss against Norths the previous week, Newtown was back in the winner’s circle at Henson Park after disposing of St George 20-3 at Henson Park.

A Steve Morris try saw the Saints lead 3-2 at halftime, but the Jets dominated the second stanza, stunning their opposition with four unanswered tries.

Forwards Barry Jensen and Steve Bowden laid the foundations for the win with strong performances in the middle of the park and both were rewarded with a try each. Jensen grabbed Newtown’s first touchdown of the afternoon when he scampered over from dummy half after 51 minutes. This was followed by a carbon copy try to Bowden just seven minutes later.

Phil Sigsworth put the game out of the Dragons’ reach in the 61st minute when he swooped on an errant pass to score in the corner, but Saints discard Shane McKellar was keen to get on the act too, scoring in the 74th minute after slithering through some flimsy defence.

Jets coach Warren Ryan was particularly satisfied with the win.

“They know they can beat anyone now,” Ryan said of his players.

“Before this season, the only teams we hadn’t beaten were Canterbury and Saints.

“We beat Canterbury a few weeks ago and now the St George bogey is gone.

“I have been telling the players we can make the semi-finals. After beating St George the way they did, they know I haven’t been trying to con them.”


Newtown 20 (S.Bowden, B.Jensen, S.McKellar, P.Sigsworth tries; K.Wilson 4 goals) def. St George 3 (S.Morris try)
