Fitness a key priority for Killarney Cutters -2017 model

THE Killarney Cutters Rugby League Club has co-coaches for a second successive year, Ray Wagner and Leejay Cooper.

Wagner talks about his involvement in the club and his thoughts about the 2017 season in the Border Rugby League.

Things are looking good this season with 14 players at our meet and greet on Saturday.

Some players were involved in the Australia Day Cricket Carnival and couldn't attend.

The club has a large number of former players returning this season, including Jamie Watts, Joshua Hancock, Bradley Green and Troy Weier.

Jamie has played in the New England area and is a class hooker. Leejay and I will be big on fitness this season.

We had a number of new players last year so it was more teaching our new players about the game.

This season with a lot of old heads coming back, we can concentrate on fitness as the older players will teach our newer player a lot just being on the field.

Training starts on February 14 at Charlie Andrews Oval. We are hoping to arrange some fitness session in the pool as part of our pre-season training.

The first game will be on March 11 at Killarney against Warwick for the Xylon Smith Memorial Shield.

Killarney is one of five teams in the BRL. Prospective players can call me on 0488587095.
