Jets fly into finals

A remarkable come from behind victory by the Newtown Jets saw them finish the regular season in fourth place, setting up a week one Intrust Super Premiership finals blockbuster against Mounties next weekend.

The Jets rebounded from a huge deficit against the Sea Eagles last Saturday, setting up a double chance, however after pushing Mounties to the 80th minute just three weeks ago they will fancy their chances, with a win potentially moving them to within one game of the ISP Grand Final.

The match against Mounties has been scheduled as the first of two games to be played at Pepper Stadium on Saturday, with kick off time at 1.00pm.

A sudden-death match between the Wyong Roos and Canterbury Bulldogs will follow.
