KILLARNEY footballer Daniel Talbot was players' player in a Killarney Cutters 54-6 victory in Sunday's Border Rugby League game against Texas at Charlie Andrews Oval.

Cutters president James Kelly said Queensland police forward Shane Hooper was outstanding in his first game for the Cutters.

"He played an excellent game for us and gave us a lot of experience," Kelly said.

"The effort against Texas was one of the best in my term as president which started midway through last season."

Fullback Brett Lambert and centre Michael Marshall had strong games after  backing up from Border Bushrangers commitments at Miles on Saturday.

Bill Potter won the players' player award for Texas.

In the game at Stanthorpe, the home side beat Wallangarra 72-6.

Daniel Werthenbach celebrated his selection in the South West Country team on Saturday with four tries on Sunday.

Jason Cobon scored three tries, Aaron Abraham and Andrew Thorne two each.

Jason Wilmot scored a try and kicked 11 goals.

Stanthorpe president Norm Crisp said the fitness of his players took the game away from Wallangarra.

"We led 12-0 after 10 minutes," Crisp said.

"We are playing better footy than at the same time last season but are missing two of our better players, Nathan Shatte and Allan Wetzler, who have retired.

"Except for Nathan and Allan, the squad is basically A-grade from last year.

"Many of our reserve-grade players have given the game away as there is only one grade this season."

The Stanthorpe president said it was a concern with the high early season scores.

"The competition will be more even once the players in the weaker clubs get a few games under the belts and a bit more fitness."

Last year's A-grade premiers Inglewood had the bye on Saturday but will travel to Texas this Saturday.
