Killarney Cutters game called off
THE Killarney Cutters have started their 2010 Border Rugby League season in a disappointing fashion – their match against the Texas Terriers was called off in the second half because they only had 10 players on the field.
But Cutters president John Towells is certain they’ll be able to field a competitive team in their next match against Stanthorpe after Easter.
“I’ll have numbers by then, it was just with the trail bike ride yesterday and others were working and there are still a few blokes yet to start playing,” he said.
“We don’t have enough for two teams but we’ll have too many for one.”
When the match officials called the game off early in the second half with the score at 48-14, the Killarney Cutters players would not leave the field.
Towells said they took 12 to Texas but two were injured and could not continue playing.
He said the score was only 28-10 at half time but blew out in the second half due to the lack of players.
“They weren’t just going to give up – they battered on,” he said.
In the other A-grade match the Stanthorpe Gremlins defeated Inglewood 36-14 in Stanthorpe.
