This weekend the Newtown Jets host the North Sydney Bears at Henson Park in Round 9 of the VB NSW Cup.

With a full strength outfit named by Sydney Roosters Head Coach Trent Robinson, the Jets will line-up with an impressive outfit including Internationals Samisoni Langi and Kane Evans.

Evans was a member of Fiji's team that went down to Samoa last weekend in the NRL's Representative Round, while Langi was a key figure in Tonga's World Cup Squad at the end of 2013.

Fellow Roosters Jonathon Reuben, Tautau Moga, Heath L'Estrange, Kurt Kara and Rhyse Martin have also been named.

The Bears currently sit last in the NSW Cup competition, with the Jets just one place higher in 12th, setting the match-up as a blockbuster with two sides keen to get their seasons going.
