The Newcastle Jets will play the Western Sydney Wanderers for the first time in Saturday’s Member-only trial match.
The Hunter Ports Newcastle Jets will play the Western Sydney Wanderers for the first time in Saturday-s Member-only trial match at Wanderers Oval, Broadmeadow.
The new-look Jets outfit will be looking to maintain their undefeated run so far this pre-season against a Wanderers team featuring no less than six former Newcastle players.
After a strong showing as a back three against Sydney FC last week, Jets recruits Scott Neville, Josh Mitchell and Dominik Ritter will be out to prove their worth in the heart of the Jets defence.
They are likely to be tested by a Wanderers forward line including former Jets Labinot Haliti and Mark Bridge.
Meanwhile, down the other end of the field, the Jets forward line, lead by Ryan Griffiths will be aiming to get the better of ex-Newcastle players Tarek Elrich, Nikloai Topor-Stanley and goalkeeper Ante Covic.
