Originally from Glen Innes in Northern NSW, Newsome has made his way back home to NSW after a quick stint in Western Australia.

The talented outside back was a border at St Joseph’s College in Hunters Hill and moved on to represent Eastern Suburbs in the Shute Shield after school. Newsome was a member of the NSW U20s team in the 2015 season, he then went into a very successful NRC season for the NSW Country Eagles in 2016. He earned a reputation for scoring intercept tries in 2016 scoring 3 for the Country Eagles.

Newsome earned a trial with the Western Force in the preseason before signing a deal for the 2017 season. The NSW country product returns to the Waratahs in 2018 after a strong NRC showing particularly at outside centre. Newsome made his debut for the NSW Waratahs against the Stormers in the team's opening match of 2018 at Allianz Stadium.
