October 6, 2019. Another week, another chip from his own side of halfway, another last minute miracle from the Jets magician Billy Magoulias (pictured). This time it was Jackson Ferris on hand to gather the bouncing ball and race away to score under the posts as the full-time siren sounded to give the Jets a 20-16 over Queensland's Burleigh Bears. Retiring player Greg Eastwood kicked the conversion and Newtown cult hero and front-rower Toby Rudolf was named player of the match. A 4 minute highlights package can be viewed on the NSWRL website by clicking here.
September 29, 2019. It took until the 8th minute of extra time for the Newtown Jets to kill off Parramatta's feeder side Wentworthville 20-15 in the 2019 Canterbury Cup Grand Final and cap off another great season for coach Greg Matterson and the team. To watch a 4 minute Grand Final highlights package on the NSWRL website and enjoy some Billy Magoulias Magic and the absolute class of man of the match Will Kennedy (pictured), click here.
September 8, 2019. It came down to match 192, Penrith vs Newcastle, the last game of the season to determine the outcome in Fatcat's annual NRL Tipping Competition, "A Competition With A Difference". Charbel Hatem's epic 19 point final round saw him jump from 8th place to equal first with Peter Escott and they split $3,500.
Marc Taylor finished 3rd ($1,000) 3 points behind the winning duo and 1 point ahead of BJ Malone and last year's winner Chris Ryan ($500 each).
Rounds 17-25 segment winners were Shaun Froggatt (overall 135pts) and Marc Taylor (handicap 53pts). The inaugural Gilling Legacy "winner" was Annie Mustow who redeemed her $80 entry fee after a thoroughly underwhelming debut season.
The 6 tipsters who gained entry - through a combination of skill and good fortune - to the competition's $250 lucky door prize, The Finals Series, are Charbel Hatem, Peter Escott, Mark Young, Michael Blaser, Connie Spence and John Hermsen.
August 27, 2019. World Series XXXII will be played Monday, May 18 through Friday, May 22. The first and most important piece in the planning jigsaw, Shelly Beach, has been locked in for Friday's Championship Round.
And following the shocking revelations of money laundering and human trafficking revealed in the Federal Parliament in recent weeks, the club is officially distancing itself from junket operator Blue Sheedy who had aligned his business activities with the popular week-long sporting and cultural festival.
Of particular concern for authorities is the allegation an illegal casino has been operating from inside his rented luxurious waterfront apartment. The media-shy entrepreneur has been accused of luring drunken and weary high-rollers back to his apartment with the promise of "wine, men and song" plus a few tasty morsels like cheese and crackers, chocolate bullets and salted peanuts.
August 5, 2019. The club received news this morning of the sudden death of UK-based tipster and past ESG&EC member Gary Phillips. Gaz suffered a heart attack during a social cricket match and was unable to be revived.
This is a very recent photo of Gaz (middle) borrowed from the Pudsey St Lawrence Cricket Club website. He's with brother-in-law John McGovern (hat), his niece Frances and sister, Lyn McGovern.
Our deepest condolences to Tracy and Liam on the loss of a loving husband and father and to all his family and friends.
Vale Gaz - a great friend to many on these shores.

This site hosts Fatcat's annual NRL Tipping Competition, "A Competition With A Difference", which for $80 guarantees participants 25 bouts of weekly angst and untold international acclaim to the winner, as well as a financial reward best described as life unchanging.
This year's top tipsters were Charbel Hatem and Peter Escott (equal 1st with 321pts), Marc Taylor (3rd with 318pts), BJ Malone and 2018 winner Chris Ryan (equal 4th with 317pts). The Rounds 17-25 segment winners were Shaun Froggatt (overall 135pts) and Marc Taylor (handicap 53pts).
After a near 25 year drought, Club President Davidson Love III has strung together 3 World Series victories (2013, 2014 and 2019) in his past 6 starts. Critics of the Love regime have suggested when you control the schedule, the events, handicaps, playing partners, finances and even the weather you should own the tournament and it's becoming quite obvious he does.
Love finished on 6pts with wins in Monday's teams match play (partnered with Notah Kelly) and Tuesday's stableford aggregate (paired with Hunter Meehan) and seconds in the individual stableford (29pts) and stroke events (net 82).
The knockout tournament was played at The Entrance Hotel Euchredome during the week-long '31 Unlucky For Some Tour' and began with the all important draw for partners conducted by "Six Card" Sheedy B.Eu (Hons), the Earlwood Euchre University's professor emeritus. 16 players, 8 teams, 1 winner - the team of Tubby Waldorf & Trent Strange who in a stunning upset defeated self-acknowledged cardmasters Per-Ulrik Fatcatsson & "Six Card" Sheedy 2 & 1.
Newtown's final home game of the season on Saturday, August 31, doubles as the Jets (and Bluebags) official reunion day. The ESG&EC is always well represented at this annual gathering, meeting at hipster heaven, the Henson Park Hotel, for a pre-game aperitif and watching the match (3pm kick-off) from the Lee Harvey Oswald grassy knoll adjacent to the King George V Memorial Grandstand and kiosk. This year the Jets ran out comfortable winners over the Newcastle Knights 34 - 22 to consolidate their finals position.
The opening round will be held on Sunday, November 10, with the first group off the tee at midday. Players must report to the starter 30 minutes beforehand with a schooner and their 1. $100 entry fee in hand. Unless we have exactly 16 competitors, The Don Lane Invitational (a stroke event in 2019) will determine the 8 qualifiers seeded through to the match play Round of 8 at midday on Heckle Sunday, November 17.
The semi-final matches are by default set down for the following 2. Friday afternoon, November 22, unless both players and President Love III (Ret.) agree to a change. The tournament concludes with the Championship Match on Sunday, November 24 (midday start).
1. Covers all tournament green fees
2. President Love has decreed that should a member of the Bong Bong 6 reach the semi-finals, their match would be by default played earlier in the week (Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday as determined by their opponent) as they'll be mingling with Southern Highlands High Society on Thursday and Friday
