Jets blown away by Warriors’ second half onslaught.

The Newtown Jets have dropped to tenth place on the Canterbury Cup NSW competition table, following their 34-8 loss to the New Zealand Warriors at Mt Smart Stadium, Auckland on Saturday.

The Jets trailed by only 10-8 at halftime after a hard-fought opening forty minutes, but a series of possession turnovers and defensive errors emboldened the Warriors to race away to a commanding 28-8 lead in the game’s third quarter.

It was a disappointing result for the Jets, but they fielded a less than full strength line-up because of the run of injuries in the Cronulla Sharks NRL squad.

Next Saturday, 27th July, is a huge day for the Newtown Jets club, with the fourth annual Beer, Footy & Food Festival being held at Henson Park, with the gates opening at 12 noon.

On the rugby league front, the Newtown Jets will be at home to Canterbury-Bankstown at 3.00pm. There are two curtain-raiser matches being played at Henson Park prior to the Jets-Bulldogs showdown.
