Cutters put on 12 men in solid win
THE Killarney Cutters scored a 50-10 win over the Warwick Rebels in the Border Rugby League A-Grade game at Charlie Andrews Oval under lights last Friday night.
Michael Marshall scored the first of his three tries after making a break and sprinting 50 metres.
With the Cutters dropping the ball on the restart the Rebels won the scrum about 15 metres out and spread the ball wide for winger Kevin Polle to score for the Rebels to trail by two points.
There was 10 minutes of rugby league with both teams attacking their line before Killarney put on an unanswered 30 points to lead 36-4 before the Rebels crossed the lines through the hands of centre Josh Williams under the post and converted his own try.
Killarney scored three more tries in the last 10 minutes to take the 50-10 win over the Rebels.
Killarney President Mick Tattam said the Rebels’ determination on the night was outstanding after taking to the field with only 12 players.
Mick felt the Cutters should have won by a higher margin only for the gusty effort by the Rebels to stop the Cutters from crossing the line.
Best on the field for Killarney were Michael Marshall, Nathan Watts, Luke Phillipson and Shannon Slater along with James Jerome, Kevin Poole, Josh Williams and Chris Stokes playing well for the Rebels.
Referee Points: 3 Luke Phillipson (Killarney), 2 James Jerome (Warwick) and 1 Nathan Watts (Killarney)
