When the Jets set their sights on the 2019 finals

Tonight we head into round 23 of the Newtown Jets 2020 Virtual Season.

Once again a Newtown Jets game from the past is brought to you midweek, “Amco Cup retro-style”. Our gun social media team will be ”live tweeting” the game so that you can be part of the action.

On Wednesday, 19th August, we’re back at Henson Park for the 2019 Canterbury Cup clash between Newtown and Western Suburbs that was actually played on Saturday, 24th August 2019.

The Newtown Jets and the Western Suburbs Magpies were headed into this 23rd round Canterbury Cup showdown, with a place in the competition’s top eight on the line. After what had been a very ordinary start to the 2019 season, losing six of their first seven competition matches, the Jets had staged a remarkable fightback to now be in 7th position on 21 points, two points ahead of the mighty Magpies who were on 19.

This clearly was a game where a place in the top eight and the finals was going to be decided. This match was also going to be the decider for the 2019 Tom Raudonikis Cup, the annual series contested by these two NSWRL foundation clubs.

Make sure you tune in at 8.00pm, Wednesday, 19th July on Jets TV: www.newtownjets.com  or on www.facebook.com/newtownrlfc . You can follow the live comments on www.twitter.com/newtownrlfc
