Despite their strong start, glimpses of hope and being one of the most exciting teams to watch this year, the Jets are currently sitting in ninth place on the ladder.

It will take winning all three of their remaining fixtures, as well as other results going their way, to remain in finals contention.

Despite the likelihood of playing finals being low, the Jets remain focused on improving their game for the remainder of the season, putting in the work ahead of next year.

Head coach Arthur Papas says a key focus of the team is their starts and getting ahead early.

“We want to compete again and show up and improve our starts,” he said.

“The last two games our starts haven’t been good enough.

“We can’t come in at half-time every game at 3-0 and expect to get back in it. That’s the area to improve on.

Looking ahead to the end of the season and into next year, Papas’ focus is solely on improving what the team can control rather than focusing on outside noise.

“We’ve stayed focused on what we can control,” he said.

“Bridging the gap is important and making sure we continue doing that for this season and going into next season.

Despite a less than ideal end to the season, the Jets have had one of their best seasons in recent years, already sitting two places higher than their 2020/21 season finishing position.

With three games still left to play, Newcastle still have an opportunity to finish their season on a high note and potentially creep further up the ladder.

Papas says he’s concentrating on improvements the team can make for the remainder of this season.

“I’m looking at how we’re going to improve for the rest of this season but also looking towards next season because that’s the most important part now,” he said.

Newcastle next play Macarthur on Sunday, followed by Western United and Central Coast Mariners, and will be looking to spoil the party for all.
