These two scholarly books on Newtown RLFC history are both still available:

Taking It To The Streets – The Second Life of the Newtown RLFC (written by Glen Dwyer) focuses on Newtown’s extraordinary and thrilling journey in the rugby league game from 1984 to 2018.

Recent purchases of Taking It To The Streets have been made and commendations received from none other than Warren Ryan (Newtown’s first grade coach from 1979 to 1982) and two of the most fearsome front-rowers to ever come out of the famous Principality of Wales – big Merv Hicks and ferocious Jim Mills. (Published in 2019 and on sale for $30.00.)

Through Blue Eyes – A Pictorial History of Newtown RLFC (written by Terry Williams) is the centenary history publication of the Newtown RLFC, traversing the years and the club’s joys and sorrows from 1908 to 2008. Renowned journalist and sporting author Malcolm Andrews rated Through Blue Eyes as being one of the best of all the rugby league histories that were published in 2008. (Published in 2008 and on sale for $15.00.)
