Jets win easily against defending Premiers

The Newtown Jets rediscovered their mojo in recording a strong 44-14 win against Canterbury-Bankstown in the NSW Cup trial match played at Henson Park on Saturday evening.

The Jets had looked more than a little ragged when they had been well beaten by Western Suburbs on the previous weekend, but on Saturday Newtown led from the front and stayed in command in what was an impressive win over the 2009 NSW Cup premiers.

Newtown dominated possession early in the match and assisted by a run of penalties ran up a 14-0 lead early in the first half. The Jets led 18-4 at half-time and added a further five tries to blow the score out to 44-8, with the Bulldogs posting a converted try late in the game.
