The Newtown Jets have scored a convincing 34-22 victory in their last round match against Newcastle ahead of week one of the Final next week
The Jets built on a spectacular first half in scoring a confidence-building final round win in their last regular season game.
In front of a healthy crowd on old boys day at Henson Park, the Jets scored five first half tries in taking a 28-6 lead to the break, before doing enough in the second period to secure the win and to head into next week’s sudden death finals on a winning note.
It only took the Newtown side three minutes to open their account, Will Kennedy scoring, but in quick succession half back Brayden Trindall, prop Wes Lolo and then Kennedy again would cross and all of a sudden it was 22-0.
A fifth Newtown try, this time by young back rower Teig Wilton, converted by Trindall and it was 28-0 Jets and the game was as good as over despite the game being just 26 minutes in.
The Jets probably weren't thrilled with the final 50-odd minutes of the game but the damage had been done as they would go on to ground out a 34-22 victory.
After finishing in seventh place on the Canterbury Cup ladder the Newtown Jets now face Mounties in week one of the Finals.
