From The Inner West To FAR West. Is The Perth Jets A Reality?

Brent Read explained that the Newtown Jets are planning on moving to Perth to launch a bid to become one of NRL’s newest franchises.


And the possibility excited Ben Te’o.

‘It’s an opportunity for them,’ said Te’o.

‘To keep a foundation club going.

‘They’ve been out long enough and can create a new identity in Perth.’

Though the brakes will be pressed according to Read as the NRL may look elsewhere before going out West.

‘I’m not sure if they’ll be the next one.

‘The NRL want to get to 20 but I think the next one will be a Pasifika team.’

Yet the reality of a Perth Jets side could still be sooner than later.

‘But the Western Australian government are supportive of the concept.

‘They’re willing to throw some cash.’
