There might not be many spectators in the background, but Newtown Jets winger Edrick Lee showed all the poise and athleticism of a top-class NRL player in scoring this try right on half-time last Sunday. Five-eighth Kyle Flanagan had put the perfectly-flighted kick into the corner for Edrick to leap for and catch. Photo: Mario Facchini (MAF Photography)

Most Newtown Jets supporters would have seen the black and white version of this photo of the Newtown RLFC NSWRL first grade premiership-winning team of 1943, captained by the mighty Frank “Bumper” Farrell and coached by Arthur Folwell. This colourised version has been kindly supplied by a Newtown Jets supporter named Coll who has done a number of other interesting colourisations as well.
