The Jets took decisive control in the game’s second quarter with tries to Royce Hunt in the 19th minute, Addison Demetriou (29th minute), Jackson Ferris (33rd minute) and the powerhouse Kayleb Milne on the stroke of halftime. Braydon Trindall converted all four tries for Newtown to take a commanding 24-6 lead into the break.
Matterson commended those players on debut for the Jets on Sunday – John Olive, Zac Woolford, Kyle Paterson, Brock Gray and Royce Hunt.
He also praised those players on duty on Sunday who had played in one or both of Newtown’s 2019 finals victories – Jackson Ferris, Billy Magoulias (who reprised another of his miracle kicks yesterday), Braydon Trindall, Jayson Bukuya, Teig Wilton, Siosifa Talakai, Wes Lolo and Daniel Vasquez.
Where is Trindall? He's named in NRL reserves but completely out of Newtown Jets?
all reserves and reps cancelled
I think he is still a way off an NRL start, pretty sure he was named on the bench (Paterson starting) before games got postponed.
Why did the NSW Cup cancel so early? Was it to save clubs paying players or something?
NSW Cup requires players coming up and down from other comps. It increases the exposure risk, specifically for an NRL player who goes down.. as he may now be coming in to contact with non-professional players for whom there was no enforcement of isolation.
Qld Cup was moreso because of travel restrictions, as while NRL players do participate the teams all have full 20+ man squads of non-NRL players.
I expect (purely my speculation) that the NRL will figure out a way to get more players involved (more interchanges or extra emergency subs) and make a rule that once anyone plays in a lower grade they have to stay there for the rest of the year or go through a testing/quarantine process to move up.
Forgive me for saying 'I told you so' Snowman but I talked this bloke up at the startt of the year and you bagged him. At least you are starting to realise you really have absolutely NFI, which is something most of us have picked up on by now.
