This Saturday’s match at Lottoland is a must win situation for the Newtown Jets

Jets coach Greg Matterson will have a very clear message for his players in Saturday’s Canterbury Cup NSW match against Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles at Lottoland (Brookvale Oval).

Last Saturday’s sensational upset win against the competition leaders Canterbury-Bankstown, played in front of a massive crowd at Henson Park, will count for nothing if the Jets don’t follow it up with a win against the Manly-Warringah partnership club.

Both teams are fielding several players with NRL experience, and the Blacktown Workers Canterbury Cup team has a strong record of lifting its game when the partnership club plays at Lottoland as a curtain-raiser to a NRL game.

The Sea Eagles will be fielding a gigantic forward pack and the Jets will need to bring their best form with them in this away trip to the Northern Beaches.

As Henson Park ground announcer John Lynch noted, the Canterbury Cup competition is remarkably closely contested with very little separating the teams from sixth position to tenth position on the premiership table.

The Sea Eagles-Jets match is being televised live on Fox League from 12.30pm.

The match details are:
