Former Newtown Jets players spotted at Mt Smart Stadium last Sunday included Shontayne Hape and Jerry Seu Seu who both played for Newtown back in 2000. That was the season when Newtown and the Auckland Warriors formed a ground-breaking partnership between a NRL club and a club playing in what was then the NSWRL First Division competition. Both Shontayne and Jerry spoke with great affection for the Newtown club on Sunday and they sent their good wishes. Shontayne Hape has a rather unique place in sporting history – he is the only person on Earth to have played with both the Newtown RLFC (Australia’s oldest Rugby League club) and for England in Rugby Union!
