Cutters To Joust Knights

The Illawarra Cutters welcome the Newcastle Knights to Jubilee Oval, Kogarah on Saturday.

Last weekend was great for both sides as they registered convincing victories.

The Cutters were winners against the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles, while the Knights gave the Wentworthville Magpies a rare loss.

The Cutters showed some attacking brilliance last weekend and will again be hoping to do this against the Knights with prolific try-scorers Kiti Glymin, Geoff Daniela and Tyrone Cranston.

Head Coach Scott Logan admits he has been impressed with the attitudes shown by his players during training since taking over the helm in charge and is hoping the trend continues.

“We had a disjointed week at training in the build-up to the game and the main thing we wanted to focus on was our attitude,” said Logan.

“The main thing behind the win against Manly was the professional attitude of the boys which they have shown in recent weeks.

“As long as they go out there with the right attitude and give us some effort on their end and build some pressure by doing the things we practice at training then I am always happy with their performance.”

On the other hand, the Knights have plenty of experience in their side including Timana Tahu and Clint Newton.

The Knights will have a lot of confidence heading into the contest after a victory against the then ladder leaders and so the Cutters cannot afford to be complacent.

A win for the Cutters will put them in a position to move further away from the chasing pack.
