Best wishes from the Newtown RLFC to Scott Dureau:
Scott Dureau joined Newtown in 2014 when he was a mid-season signing by the Sydney Roosters. He turned in some memorable performances during his stay with this club and made a lot of friends.
We understand he isn’t in the best of health at the moment, and I am sure that everyone connected with the Newtown Jets would extend their sincere best wishes to Scott and his family.
Here’s to Scott making a complete recovery.

Newtown Jets respect and honour the Traditional Custodians of the Land and pay our respects to their Elders past and present. We acknowledge the stories, traditions and living cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples on the lands we meet, gather and play on and that the land area encompassing Henson Park traditionally belonged to the Gadigal people of the Eora nation.
