Newtown Jets premiers of NSW Cup - a storification of Grand Final day

Submitted by Rick Eyre on October 1, 2012 - 11:34am

The Newtown Jets won the 2012 NSW Cup grand final on 29 September at ANZ Stadium with a heart-stopping 22-18 victory over the Balmain Ryde Eastwood Tigers. In my opinion it was easily the best of the three games on Grand Final day, and gave the Jets their first victory in the NSW Cup since it was reconstituted as the de facto reserve grade for non-Queensland NRL clubs.

Here's a storification of selected tweets and images of the Jets victory, including progress reports of the game and the celebrations afterwards:

21:46 @Bondiborn @nehadk the Tour de France is an actual sporting event. The Rugby League Week Immortal is not. #
21:32 sorry, but the Rugby League "Immortal" concept leaves me cold. It is, and always has been, a magazine promotion. #

16:07 just realised that I was in the Powerhouse Museum at the same time as Tony Abbott this morning. Pity he didn't do the Narnia exhibit #
15:09 I bet Daniel Mortimer never dreamt that he would be captaining a grand final side within a year of joining the Roosters http://t.co/tNm4jTE0 #

20:15 Maybe the video refs are too busy watching the greyhounds at Wentworth Park. (Do they still have greyhounds at Wentworth Park?) #nrlmelman #
20:13 @bernietb and the solution to poor refereeing is simply to double their numbers. I'm totally baffled. #nrlmelman #
20:11 I'm usually reluctant to bag referees/umpires in any sport but Gawd! What sort of training do these video refs get? #nrlmelman #
20:07 Hey I was joking. #
20:06 Slater's lost it. The video ref will award it. #nrlmelman #
