Illawarra Cutters


  •  

    The Illawarra Cutters are the present NSW Cup Premiers for 2016.

    The milestone is the culmination of a new, unique partnership devised in September 2011, which saw the Illawarra Rugby League, Illawarra Steelers and St George Illawarra Dragons announce the formation and entry of an Illawarra team into the Intrust Super Premiership competition for 2012.

    With the support of Illawarra Coal as the team's major sponsor, the team debuted in March 2012 as the Illawarra Cutters, wearing the traditional scarlet and white of the Illawarra District.

    The Cutters host all home matches at the newly revamped WIN Stadium, Wollongong, using a mix of contracted players from the Dragons NRL squad, NYC sqaud, and Illawarra Coal League.

    The Illawarra Cutters are coached by Jason Demetriou who took over the reigns ahead of the 2016 season.

    Dragons Junior Representative and Illawarra Cutters Manager Neil Lovett manages the team’s administration while Steelers Deputy Chairman Sean O’Connor chairs the team’s Football Management Sub-Committee which will also include the Chairman of the Illawarra Coal League Ian Neill, Steelers Director Graeme Gulloch and representatives of the Dragons.

    The Dragons are proud to work with the Illawarra Cutters as their official “feeder club”, to enable the St George and Illawarra Steelers Harold Matthews (U16) and SG Ball (U18) teams to participate in their respective NSW Rugby League competitions in 2016 and beyond.
