ISP Preview: Jets set for Premiers' threats

Scoring a tough win over the Penrith Panthers last weekend, the Newtown Jets head to the Hunter to take on the Newcastle Knights in a battle of contrasting form and fortunes.

Sitting on the cusp of the ISP's all-important top four, the Jets will square off with the reigning Premiers, who have struggled to replicate their form of the last season.

The unnamed Fa'amanu Brown is expected to make a return to action for the Jets with James Maloney's inclusion into the Sharks' NRL side, which will be a welcomed boost for the Blue Baggers.

Brown bagged a double at Henson Park last weekend, as fellow Shark Kurt Capewell slotted two goals from as many attempts to see the side home by two points. 

Sharks and Jets supporters can tune into see all the action of the match, with the Round 22 clash to be broadcast live on Fox Sports, Channel 501.
