This weekend the Jet’s will continue their turnaround season in the playoff semi-finals against BBL Regular Season Champion Newcastle Eagles. With the away leg being played in Newcastle on Friday, the men in black will return to the Northgate on Sunday to finish the series:
Jets Vs. Eagles – Friday 4th May @ 7.30pm
Jets Vs. Eagles – Sunday 6th May @ 5.30pm
The importance of this game is not to be overlooked, and American Centre Matthew Schneck had this message for the fans:
“After what they’ve accomplished this year and in years past, we look at the Newcastle Eagles with a lot of respect. I think that their current situation, is the direction the community and those in our front office are hoping our club can eventually head. In order to do that, you’ve got to compete in big games like this weekend. There have been few times throughout the season where the spotlight has been on us, so it’s time to perform. We’ve had a great turn-around, and an enjoyable past month, but there is more we as a unit would like to accomplish. Heading into the game we’re the underdogs, which takes the pressure off a little bit, and after a good practice last night, you can tell our mindset is what it needs to be. We’re hoping to give back to the fans this weekend. And hoping that they will come out to support us both away in Newcastle and on Sunday at the Northgate.”
