Throw Back Thursday – Carney Leads The Carnage As Jets Crank It Up To Eleven

Each week thanks to Cryo, we bring you a story from our rich history. Today we go back to 2012 and a big win against the visiting Newcastle Knights.

CARNEY LEADS THE CARNAGE AS JETS CRANK IT UP TO ELEVEN

Big turnarounds are not unusual in the second grade. When you must cater for injuries at your grade and at NRL level, it means form is not the best indicator.

Going into the Round 11 NSW Cup clash with Newcastle at Henson Park, many considered Newtown to be underdogs. The Knights were third on the table and had dominated Newtown two months earlier with a 42-24 win in Round 2 at Toronto. On the other hand, the Jets were coming off a loss to North Sydney the previous week.

Fortunately for the Henson Park faithful, Newtown did not adhere to the form guide. Watched on by comedian, Tahir Bilgic, who was filming a segment for Fox Sports, the Jets ran riot. Newtown led 18-0 after only 12 minutes through two tries to centre Justin Carney and one to halfback Daniel Mortimer. Momentum then shifted as the Knights surged back into the game to trail by 24-18 after 30 minutes.

From there It was all Newtown. Tries to centre Adam Henry and winger Daniel Tupou gave the Jets a 34-18 lead at halftime. The tries continued in the second half starting with Mark Kheirallah’s meat pie on 45 minutes.  Seven different players ended up crossing the stripe for Newtown including doubles to Jack Littlejohn and Daniel Mortimer as well as a hat-trick to Justin Carney. The nuggety centre’s hat-trick try came right on full time when he seized on a Sam Latu grubber-kick. The final score was 64-24 to Newtown, a 58-point turnaround from the game 9 weeks earlier.

Newtown Jets 64 (Justin Carney 3, Jack Littlejohn 2, Daniel Mortimer 2, Kane Evans, Adam Henry, Daniel Tupou, Mark Kheirallah tries; Mark Kheirallah 10 goals) defeated Newcastle Knights 24 (4 tries; 4 goals) at Henson Park. At half time, Newtown led by 34-18. The referee was Matt Noyen. The touch judges were Jay Farlow and Richard Daizli.
