Cutters come out on top in derby
TWO tries to five-eighth Wayne Hippi helped the Killarney Cutters beat the Warwick Rebels 36-22 in the local derby at Charlie Andrews Oval on Saturday.
Killarney led 30-22 with five minutes to go when centre Jake Hitching scored a try which put the result beyond doubt.
Second rower Ken Stoneman converted in his first game in the number six jersey, the same number as his favourite player Darren Lockyer.
Leejay Cooper and coach Tony Bryant also scored tries for the Cutters and Adam Upton kicked five goals.
Inglewood beat Texas 42-18 in the A-grade game at Reg Saunders Oval at Texas on Saturday.
The visitors led 32-6 at half-time with Texas reducing the margin to 32-18 before Inglewood scored two late tries.
Texas president James Moore rated Rob Morris and Ben Cox as his best.
“We were a bit disappointed with our first-half effort but improved in the second half,” Moore said.
“Coach Jason Edmondstone is still out with injury and we were missing four other players on Saturday.”
Tim West scored two tries for Inglewood. Fullback Matt West impressed in attack as always.
