Cutters hungry for win
THE loss of Al Weatherall is a blow to the Killarney Cutters in the lead up to the Border Rugby League game against Texas at Charlie Andrews Oval at 2.30pm today.
Weatherall is out with an ankle injury and will be replaced at five-eighth by Christopher McGregor, who had work commitments last weekend.
Forward Vi Vaeau also returns for the game against Texas after showing promise in his first season for the Cutters.
Cutters president John Towells said he hoped the team could notch up its first win of the season.
“We played well against Tenterfield last weekend and are improving each week,” Towells said.
“It is always a hard game against Texas.”
One of the Texas players to watch is 41-year-old Tim Smith, who was in the Border representative side this season.
After being devastated earlier in the season by the Killarney Abattoir closure, the Cutters club has signed some new players in the past two weeks and is keen to field a reserve-grade team within the next fortnight.
In the other Border game, Inglewood hosts premiers Stanthorpe at the Macintyre Sports Complex.
Wattles has tough assignment
THE Wattles Warriors face what could be a tough day at the office when they do battle with premiers Valleys at Herb Steinohrt Oval tomorrow.
The Valleys side includes five of the six Toowoomba players who made the Central division side this season.
Wattles has mixed it with most teams this season but will need a committed performance in all grades. The first game, the under 18 clash, is at 11.30am.
Warwick is at home today from 2.30pm to Pittsworth with A-grade at 7pm.
