Newtown form alliance with

The Bulldogs have forged an agreement with Newtown, which will establish the Jets as a feeder side for the National Rugby League club.

The Bulldogs will use the partnership as a way of allowing players on the fringe of Premier League to maintain their match fitness.

Newtown was aligned with South Sydney but the agreement fell apart in the pre-season. Flying Bulldogs winger Matt Riddle and strong centre Dayne Neirnickx will play for Newtown this weekend.
