Finals Week 3 - Jets v Dragons

A second consecutive sudden-death finals victory has the Jets primed and in a confident frame of mind heading into a Grand Final qualifier against the Dragons at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium in Kogarah on Saturday.

The Jets showed poise and resilience to bounce back after a slow start in their elimination semi against the North Sydney Bears last weekend, the 30-28 victory propelling them to within one game of the competition decider.

Leading the way for the Newtown side were Sharks young guns Billy Magoulias, Blayke Brailey and Will Kennedy, while forward Toby Rudolf provide the go forward, with the Jets scoring some spectacular tries in their come-from-behind win.

This Sunday however they will need to lift another notch against a St George Illawarra Dragons side which claimed the minor premiership before scoring a round one finals victory to earn themselves a rest last weekend.

With the Sharks eliminated from the Finals race, the Jets have been able to name a strong side for the Dragons game, with Jayson Bukuya, Aaron Gray and Scott Sorensen set to provide the Newtown side with plenty of experience.

The game is scheduled for a 3.10pm kickoff at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium on Sunday.
