Miracle needed to save the Killarney Cutters

RUGBY LEAGUE: Killarney Cutters officials have been calling for volunteers to take on positions for the past month.

After a lot of talk in the Killarney area and major publicity about the dire need for office bearers, the club needs a miracle within two days to stay afloat and remain in the Border Rugby League.

The Inglewood club is also short of office bearers.

The BRL AGM is at 10.30am Sunday at the Stanthorpe RSL.

Killarney president Aaron McKinney said past president James Kelly was the only person who had offered so far to be on the committee for next year.

"I am one of the current committee who have offered to help but we need office bearers,” McKinney said.

BRL president Norm Crisp said Stanthorpe and Tenterfield had elected committees.

"Inglewood is having a third attempt at an AGM on Saturday at 10am at the Inglewood Bowls Club,” Crisp said.

"I am very hopeful Inglewood will form a committee. I have been in contact with Texas about the possibility of fielding a team in 2018 and are waiting to hear back.”

Crisp said if only three clubs had committees and teams for the 2018 season, it would mean there would be no competition.

"The BRL would go into recess for 2018 with the possibility of reforming in 2019 but the odds of that happening would be extremely long,” he said.

Anyone keen to save the Cutters can call McKinney on 0447111124.
