Disturbing news from England that the former Newtown Jet Grant Millington is likely to undergo heart surgery. Grant played with Newtown in 2006 and 2007, and has also played with the Sydney Roosters, Canterbury-Bankstown, Cronulla-Sutherland and the UK club Castleford. The proposed surgery is to correct a heart murmur. Fortunately his condition is not thought to be life threatening and he hopes to resume playing in 2017. Everyone at the Newtown Jets wishes Grant and his family all the best for the future.
