Western Suburbs Magpies have fallen to a 32-24 defeat to the Newtown Jets in Round 18 of the NSW Cup at Henson Park.

Newtown led 20-6 at half-time, and despite an improved second half, Wests weren’t able to run the Jets down.

Kyle Pickering spun his way to the line to put first points on the board and Jesse Colquhoun’s determined effort to cross beside the uprights meant the Jets led 10-0 after 18 minutes.

Sam Healey and Braden Hamlin-Uele both bagged four-pointers to extend the Newtown lead, before Zakauri Clarke gave the Magpies their first try of the afternoon.

The young back-rower proved too powerful on the left edge, crashing his way through multiple Jets defenders to score just before the half-time break.

After Siteni Taukamo scored after 45 minutes, Bud Sullivan hoisted a kick up in the air for Alex Lobb to produce a trademark leap and grab a second for Wests.

The Magpies went back-to-back too when Josh Feledy powered his way to the line, however Colquhoun grabbed a double shortly after to further the Newtown lead.

A slick line-break from Brent Naden sent Feledy over for his second and Jordan Miller crashed over for another late consolation try with five minutes remaining.

Alex Lobb’s conversion made it a 32-24 scoreline in favour of Newtown at full-time at Henson Park.
