Cutters Face Grizzly Task

The Illawarra Cutters face the North Sydney Bears at WIN Stadium, Wollongong on Saturday.

The Cutters head into the game looking for their third straight win, after their 10 point victory over Newtown last week.

North Sydney have yet to record a win since the opening round and are intent on snapping their losing streak.

The Cutters team features a few changes this week with Sam Williams  returning to the halves .

Additionally, Junior Tia-Kilifi  enters the starting line-up with Peni Botiki joining the interchange bench.

The North Sydney line-up features some first grade talent with veterans Lote Tuqiri, Beau Champion and Ben Lowe all named.

The Cutters need to have a good completion rate to defeat the experienced Bears line up.

While they have been able to produce more consistent football over the 80 minutes in the last two weeks, they need to hold to the ball more to take advantage of their good play.

The Cutters won last week off a good defence but cannot rely on that against a team that has the weapons to score.
