Newtown plays away to the Auckland Lions

Kick-Off: 11.50am (NSW time)

The Newtown Jets travel to Auckland this weekend to face up to the new arrivals in the NSWRL VB Premier League, the Vodafone Auckland Lions.

The Lions made an astounding home debut in their new competition last Saturday night when they demolished last year's premiers Parramatta 27-8. There is nothing the new boys would like better than to claim the scalp of the second of last year's Grand Finalists as well.

The Jets in turn will be fielding a strong team with no less than 8 players with recent NRL experience including the mercurial points-scorer Amos Roberts.
