Cutters go down to the Tigers

THE Killarney Cutters went down to the Tenterfield Tigers 44-16 at a water-logged Tiger Park on Saturday.

Overnight rain of 50mm saturated the field and with junior league fixtures on the ground that morning, left the field a mud bowl.

Cutters centre Peter Doidge barged his way across the line under the post to score with Galloway converting to trail by 6 at the half-time break.

Killarney, who only fielded 12 players, let the Tigers in for three tries in the opening ten minutes of the second half to give the home side a 36-12 lead.

Cutters coach Darryl Watts said Killarney was unlucky not to put more points on the board as they held the Tigers at bay for the next 20 minutes and attacked their line several times before Mark McGrady scored for Tenterfield in the 70th minute.

After several attempts to cross the Tigers' line Cutters player Tony Bryant raced through to dive a kick through from Shannon Slater to have the score 40-16 at the 78 minute.

Phillip Mayne returned for the Tigers receiving the man-of-the-match points.

Shane Frier, Shane Upton, Dion Galloway and Brett Watts were good on the field for the Cutters with Darryl Watts giving credit to all the players.
