The Illawarra Cutters will play their final pre-season game against North Sydney Bears at TG Milner Ground, Marsfield on Saturday.

After starting their preparations well with a win against Newtown Jets, last week they were brought back down after being humbled by the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.

With this the last chance for some of the part-time squad members to push for a round one, especially with members of the Dragons first-grade squad still to come down.

Included this weekend are new signings Justin Hunt, Kris Keating and Beau Henry alongside Charly Runciman and Craig Garvey.

North Sydney, the feeder club for the Souths Sydney Rabbitohs, will be in the same boat as the Cutters with both first grade squads in England for the World Club Series.

It will be a full day for the Dragons as the St George Dragons Harold Matthews and SG Ball teams will play before the Cutters kick off at 3.00pm.
