Warriors breakout second half overpowers the Jets

The Newtown Jets have dropped to tenth place on the Canterbury Cup NSW competition table, following their 34-8 loss to the New Zealand Warriors at Mt Smart Stadium, Auckland on Saturday.

The Canterbury Cup premiership table is tightly congested, with very little separating tenth and sixth place.

The Jets trailed by only 10-8 at halftime after a hard-fought opening forty minutes, but a series of possession turnovers and defensive errors empowered the Warriors to race away to a commanding 28-8 lead in the game’s third quarter.

It was a disappointing result for the Jets, but they fielded a less than full strength line-up because of the run of injuries in the Cronulla Sharks NRL squad.

Next Saturday, 27th July, is a huge day for the Newtown Jets club, with the fourth annual Beer, Footy & Food Festival being held at Henson Park, with the gates opening at 12 noon. As described elsewhere on this website, there will be the largest ever roll-out of boutique breweries and gourmet food outlets, along with children’s entertainment.

On the rugby league front on Saturday, the Newtown Jets will be at home to competition leaders Canterbury-Bankstown at 3.00pm. There are two curtain-raiser matches being played at Henson Park prior to the Jets-Bulldogs showdown. The Glebe Dirty Reds play Penrith Brothers in a Ron Massey Cup fixture at 10.45am, followed by Cronulla Sharks taking on the Canterbury Bulldogs in a Jersey Flegg Cup match at 12.45pm.
