Matt Buxton from the NSWRL wrote an interesting piece on Newtown’s win last Saturday. The title of the article is drawn from the words of a club song that some of you might be familiar with:

News on Newtown Jets alumni:
David Fa’alogo began his Australian rugby league career with Newtown back in 2003 – and he ended his playing days with the Ipswich Jets in the Intrust Super Cup Qld last weekend with a win against Wynnum-Manly, and by kicking a conversion right on fulltime.
Several former Newtown Jets featured in the recent Queensland Rugby League annual awards – Jonathon Reuben was the ISC Qld top try-scorer for 2016; Rhyse Martin was named as a second-rower in the ISC Qld team of the season; and Ryley Jacks finished high up in the voting figures for the ISC Qld player of the year.
