The Jets and Illawarra to renew acquaintances after last year’s epic preliminary final at Leichhardt Oval

The Newtown Jets have an appointment with the defending national second-tier champions at WIN Stadium, Wollongong tomorrow.

Illawarra won last year’s Intrust Super Premiership NSW title and also the Intrust Super National Championship playoff, and they will host the Newtown Jets at WIN Stadium, Wollongong on Saturday afternoon, 18th March. Both teams have won one ISP NSW game this season and lost one, and they will be extra keen to take the two points on offer. Tomorrow’s team lists for both clubs read very differently to the sides that staged such a ferocious showdown in the pouring rain in last year’s thrilling preliminary final.

Today is the 17th March, so it’s a Happy St Patrick’s Day to everyone linked in any way to the Newtown Jets. There wouldn’t be many other rugby league clubs where there has been a greater Irish influence in the ranks of its players, officials and supporters over 110 years. Surnames like Hyde, Farrell, Cahill, Daly, Moore, Sullivan, O’Connor, Kelly and Murphy spring to mind along with so many more surnames drawn from the Land of Saints and Scholars.
