Young Jets encounter a tough learning curve

Newtown’s rebuilt 2018 Intrust Super Premiership team went close to beating last year’s grand finalists Wyong in the opening competition round at Morry Breen Oval on Saturday.

The Wyong Roos dominated possession in the first half and might well have led by more than 18-10 at half-time. The young Jets fought back strongly in the second half and drew level 24-all with four minutes remaining to play. A Roos field goal in the game’s last thirty seconds gave Wyong a somewhat fortunate 25-24 win. A significant number of Newtown’s team were in their debut senior level rugby league competition game and no doubt they will learn a great deal from the experience.

In the ISP NSW second round, the Jets take on St George-Illawarra next Thursday evening, 15th March, at Southern Cross Group Stadium, Woolooware at 5.30pm.
