TO all Newtown RLFC members and supporters:
A REMINDER FOR ALL NEWTOWN JETS RLFC MEMBERS AND SUPPORTERS.
NSWRL First Division.
THIS weekend's Newtown Jets matches:
NEWTOWN might have lost Friday nights First Division match against Parramatta by 24-18, but this was one of the Jets better performances of the year. There were some outstanding efforts in scrambling defence, and a sense of collective strength and toughness right across the park. With two forwards sidelined by injury in the first half, Newtown played most of this fast and furious contest down to two men on the bench. It was one of those occasions that even in a losing dressing room, the Jets could all look one another in the eye and say with genuine conviction: "we all had a go tonight".

A good crowd turned up last Saturday for the Newtown community reunion day at Henson Park, but the Jets spoiled their own party by turning in one of their more forgettable efforts for the season. Newtown had won handsomely against Balmain four weeks ago, but several of the Jets played on Saturday as if their winning bonuses were already in the bag. Trailing 10-4 at the break, the Jets conceded a further four tries to the Tigers in losing by 36-10.
