[h=1]Cutters Make It Eight On The Trot[/h]

Sunday 5 August 2012 3:13 PM

http://www.dragons.com.au/site/_content/LeadImage/00039763-leadimage.jpg


The Illawarra Cutters were 38-16 winners over the Mt Pritchard Mounties at WIN Stadium, Wollongong on Saturday.
The Cutters were bolstered by the services of five-eighth Jamie Soward, battling to overcome a back-spasm injury, second-rower Leeson Ah Mau and hooker Cameron King as the searched for their eighth consecutive win.
The home side scored started strongly and after just four minutes scored when centre Chris Astill caught a Jamie Soward bomb and dove over out wide.
Bronx Goodwin dived likewise over in the corner soon after and Soward made the conversion to make it 10-0 after eleven minutes.
Astill's good start to the game continued when he swooped on a loose ball and raced sixty metres downfield before being tackled.
On the ensuing play, fullback Michael Lett took the line on and strolled over untouched for his twenty sixth try of the season.
Soward converted to make it 16-0.
The Mounties hit back with a try of their own to five eighth David Farkas after eighteen minutes.
Farkas converted his own try to make it 16-6.
Late in the first half Damien Cook came on and sliced through some flimsy defence from twenty metres out to score his twelfth try of the season.
Soward's conversion made it 22-6.
Mounties were the first to score in the second half when winger Suni Fatialofa dived over in the corner in the forty seventh minute.
The Cutters were doing plenty of defence and it wasn't until the sixty third minute that they scored when Jeremy Latimore crashed over;
Soward added the extras to make it 28-10.
Astill scored his second try of the match with ten minutes left and Soward converted from the sideline to make it 34-10.
With just five minutes left Soward took the line on and had too much speed for the defence, scoring in the corner.
Mounties managed a consolation try through Nick Kassis, the conversion by Farkas making it a 38-16 scoreline.
Illawarra Cutters 38. Tries: Astill (2), Goodwin, Lett, Cook, Latimore, Soward. Goals: Soward (5/7).
Mt Pritchard Mounties 16 Tries: Farkas, Fatialofa, Kassis. Goals: Farkas (2/3).

Lett - 26 tries for the season

should we have not bought Beale and spent that money elsewhere?

We've have seen Lett before. He is fast and does well at NSW Cup level. He was an average NRL player IMO. I see Beale as becoming like Darius.

[h=1]Cutters To Tackle The Magpies[/h]

Thursday 9 August 2012 2:49 PM

http://www.dragons.com.au/site/_content/LeadImage/00040539-leadimage.jpg


The Illawarra Cutters hit the road once more when they take on the Wentworthville Magpies at Parramatta Stadium on Saturday.
The Cutters, currently perched fourth on the NSW Cup ladder, intend to stretch their eight-game unbeaten run out to nine having not lost a competitive match since their gutsy 25-10 loss to the Windsor Wolves in round 13.
Head Coach Paul McGregor and his men commanded a strong 38-16 win over the Mt Pritchard Mounties last round and retain a lot of the same personnel this time around.
The Cutters will showcase a strong forward pack featuring prop Shannon Wakeman and St George Illawarra Dragons quintet Jeremy Latimore (prop); Cameron King (hooker); Leeson Ah Mau (second-row); David Gower (second-row) and Jake Marketo (lock).
Furthermore, the back line will remain the same as the one that took to the field against Mounties witch fullback Michael Lett and winger Jack Twist both named.
“Our defence last week was awesome and last week I believe we only kept Mounties to the completion of 15 sets overall.,” said Twist.
“We seem to be finally hitting our straps and seem to be happy at the moment which is a good thing.
“My defence was out at the start but we're working on that and as I know, there's always room for improvement."
The Magpies sit just one point behind the Cutters in fifth position and are coming off an impressive 64-14 rout of the Auckland Vulcans in New Zealand.
The match kicks off at 1:30pm.

Wouldn't it be great to see them and the U/20s at the GF - even if the big boys don't make it !

I watched the Cutters game today and I can tell you that Sowie was not on fire. He did not even stand out or look like a higher standard player. I think Jarred Allen looked more impressive in the game I watched them play a few weeks ago, maybe it against Norths. SJ did you actually see him play for the Cutters last weekend or were you just going on what you heard?

Allen is still young enough to play Toyota Cup. Haven't seen him play but have heard a few good wraps.

Lett never really let us down at NRL level, and would come a helluva lot cheaper than Beale

we could add that extra cash to the JT fund ;) 
cpr_89

Keep hearing that Lett was a gun centre coming through the grades but we never really got to see it, probably because of his size...Anyway I think he's a first grader but was probably taking too long and he had a family to look after so probably made the best move.

McGregor: We Just Weren't Fast Enough



Monday 13 August 2012 3:24 PM

http://www.dragons.com.au/site/_content/LeadImage/00041166-leadimage.jpg


Illawarra Cutters Head Coach Paul McGregor conceded his team were not “fresh enough” to overcome the 36-12 loss to the Wentworthville Magpies at WIN Stadium, Wollongong on Saturday.
The Cutters fell to their first defeat in nine outings on the road and could only muster the two consolatory tries courtesy of Henry Raiwalui and Cameron King.
“Over the eighty minutes Wentworthville were very dominant because they started really quickly and we simply didn't adjust to the speed,” said McGregor.
"We found ourselves down by twelve early in the game and from there looked like a side that couldn't find our momentum in the game."
"We looked a little tired and flat."
"It had been a big month of travel and high quality football and I thought resting them up earlier in the week would freshen them up."
"We've played some very good football in the last couple of months, it was unexpected, but when it happens you've just got to learn from it."
Despite the loss, McGregor still noted some strong performances in his personnel on the field including while also casting one eye onto next round’s clash against the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles at WIN Stadium.
"I thought Jake Marketo was the guy that led the way through the middle with his defence, and I also thought Shannon Wakeman's second stint was very good too,” said McGregor.
"At times our two wingers Jack Twist and Bronx Goodwin played well."
"Next week's game against Manly is a must win and will set us up for the remainder of the season.
“After that we’ll be up against a team around the same points as us in Newtown, followed by Windsor at home
“Those games will shape where we finish."

Wata, do you know of any reason why coach Price never used Gower as a replacement for the Dragons this year? He always looked strong the few times I saw him play for the Cutters. I would have used him ahead of many that Price used.

I'm not sure, sometimes it's harder for some players to be in favour with the coach for whatever reason. I don't mean anything by that it was much the same under Bennett and Sheens.

Cutters, Dragons kick off with benchmark games

The Illawarra Cutters will kick off their 2013 NSW Cup campaign with a blockbuster against premiers Newtown at WIN Stadium on Saturday, March 9.
[CENTER]
[/CENTER]

The Cutters and the Jets played out some close encounters last season and both teams should be champing at the bit for next year's premiership opener.
After an impressive debut year in the NSW Cup after a slowish start, Cutters coach Paul McGregor is expected to have his charges ready to fire at the start.
The Cutters now have an idea of what to expect in this high-quality competition.
Once they came to grips with the requirements, under McGregor's guidance, the Cutters surged into the finals - only to fall to eventual premiers Newtown, the feeder club for the Sydney Roosters.
In an ironic start to the season, the St George Illawarra Dragons begin their NRL season proper against premiers the Melbourne Storm at AAMI Park on Sunday, March 10.
So both the Dragons and the Cutters will have an early benchmark.

The Cutters will take on previous premiers Canterbury-Bankstown at Belmore Sports Ground on Saturday, March 16, in round two before having a bye.

[h=1]Cutters NSW Cup Schedule Released[/h]

Wednesday 9 January 2013 8:00 AM

http://staticnrl.sportalhosting.com/site/_content/LeadImage/00055268-leadimage.jpg
The Illawarra Cutters will commence their second season in the NSW Cup against reigning Premiers the Newtown Jets at WIN Stadium, Wollongong on Saturday, March 9.
The Cutters were cruelly knocked out 36-30 by the eventual NSW Cup Premiers in the qualifying-finals round last season and will be aiming for the two-points in the opening round match-up.
The Scarlets then hit the road to tackle the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at Belmore Sports Ground the following round.
Both Clubs fought out a thrilling 22-all draw in the corresponding fixture last season.
The Cutters have been allocated one of their three Bye Rounds in third week of the competition before returning to host the North Sydney Bears at WIN Stadium, Wollongong in round 4.
This is followed by five consecutive away matches to face the Windsor Wolves, Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles, Wests Tigers, Wyong Roos and Jets respectively which will test the Cutters resolve early in the season.
The Scarlets will welcome the Wentworthville Magpies upon their return to WIN Stadium, Wollongong in round 9 before hosting the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks at WIN Jubilee Oval, Kogarah the following week.
The Cutters will face the Windsor Wolves at WIN Stadium, Wollongong in round 11 before two away fixtures - a road trip across the ditch to face the Auckland Vulcans in round 12 and subsequently a trip north to the Hunter region to play the Newcastle Knights.
The Scarlets will have home-advantage against the Mt Pritchard Mounties and Roos in the ensuing rounds before taking on the Bears once again in round 16 north of the Harbour Bridge.
The Cutters then host the Sea Eagles at WIN Jubilee Oval, Kogarah in round 17 before welcoming their second Bye Round of the season.
The Cutters return to action away against the Sharks in round 19 before hosting the Vulcans and Bulldogs at WIN Stadium, Wollongong.
The Cutters final Bye Round in round 22 will keep them fresh heading into the latter stages of the season.
The Scarlet’s final four games sees them venturing to face the Mounties firstly before returning for their final two home games against the Knights and Tigers at WIN Stadium, Wollongong.
The Cutters' final regular season match is against the Magpies at Ringrose Park.
