The Newtown Jets showed their best form of the 2003 pre-season in defeating Manly-Warringah 34-10 in the NSW Premier League trial played at Henson Park on Saturday evening.
Jets coach Colin Murphy had every reason to be pleased with the discipline and defensive application shown by his team, plus the fact that the Jets dominated the second half despite running into a stiff breeze. Newtown led 10-0 at the break, and had to weather a spirited fightback by the Sea Eagles before tearing away to an emphatic victory.
Newtown?s best backs were Darrell Trindall, Nathan Marles, Luke Hession and Alfie Duncan, with Aaron Trinder and Luke Sant leading up the forwards.
Next Saturday afternoon (March 29) at Henson Park starting at 3pm, the Jets meet the Penrith-St. Marys Cougars in round one of the inaugural season of the Jim Beam Cup. In the NSW Premier League, Newtown takes on North Sydney and South Sydney in an innovative 1908 Foundation Clubs "Three Way Shoot-Out", starting at 5pm.
The Newtown Jets RLFC is proud to be sponsored by two great Australian business entities - The Sydney Airports Corporation and the Petersham RSL Club.
