Cutters Welcome Jets

The Illawarra Cutters host the Newtown Jets at WIN Stadium, Wollongong on Saturday.

The Cutters are coming off their first win of the campaign after their comprehensive 34-22 win over the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks last round.

The Cutters line-up features several changes with both Shannon Wakeman and Rory O’Brien joining the starting line-up alongside winger Geoff Daniela who debuted last round.

They face the Newtown Jets who have had a tough start to the season and are still looking for their first victory of the year.

But the Jets can’t be discounted, their line-up features a sprinkling of first-grade talent and young up-and-coming prospects.

The Cutters’ strength lies with their attacking prowess within the opposition’s 20-metre line.

This needs to be combined with a fast start to the game which is something that has been improved upon since their opening two rounds of the NSW Cup.
