The Sydney Roosters wish to advise that the club's primary affiliation with NSW Cup side, the Newtown Jets, will conclude at the end of the 2014 season.
The Roosters have enjoyed a successful partnership with the Newtown Jets for the last nine seasons, however further to the club's formation of an alliance with the entire Central Coast Division Rugby League earlier this year, the Roosters are pursuing the formalisation of an agreement with the Wyong Rugby League Club Group whereby they will be the club's feeder side in the NSWRL Cup in 2015 going forward.
This proposal complements the club's strategy in linking with the region to provide a complete pathway program to the NRL. The Roosters club also has a presence in the area via the Easts Group's ownership of Woy Woy Leagues Club.
The Sydney Roosters wish fellow foundation club, the Newtown Jets, continued success, and will advise members and supporters of further information regarding this proposal in due course.
