The Newtown Jets are Australia's oldest rugby league club and are celebrating 112 years of footy this year.

The Newtown Jets are beloved in the inner west. Games are regularly packed out with supporters for weekend matches at Henson Park.

Thousands of inner westies bleed blue for the Jets.

The Jets won their first premiership in 1910 and most recently won the 2019 premiership. I reckon 2020 will again be their year.

The Jets have a proud history of supporting the inner west community. Last year it hosted the first pride and diversity match to support the LGBTQI community.

The game sent a strong message to fans and players about the importance of inclusion within the rugby league community.

The Newtown Jets have got 2020 off to a flying start, winning the Canterbury Cup NSW trial match over the weekend against the Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles by 60 points to 26.

I congratulate head coach Greg Matterson on a great start to the season and happy 112th birthday to the Newtown Jets.
