The Newtown RLFC - proudly sponsored by Sydney Airport and the Petersham RSL Club. The Newtown Rugby League Football Club is proud to announce that the Newtown RLFC VB Premier League team is to play the full strength Melbourne Storm RLFC at 5pm, Saturday, March 6th at Henson Park.
This will be Newtown's first match against a First Grade Rugby League club team since playing Balmain at Henson Park in the former NSWRL First Grade competition in August 1983.
The Storm have the bye in Round One of the 2004 NRL competition, so it is very much in their interest to have one more hit-out in full match conditions prior to their first competition game. The Melbourne Storm management have assured the Newtown club that the Storm's full strength team will be in action.
It will be a proud day for Australia's oldest Rugby League club when first grade Rugby League football returns to Henson Park at 5pm on Saturday, March 6th.
