Cutters To Host Warriors In Re-Match
By Jake Bull
The Illawarra Cutters play the New Zealand Warriors for the second week in-a-row, this time at WIN Stadium, Wollongong on Saturday.
After facing the Warriors last weekend in Auckland, the team will be hoping to bounce back quickly from the 38-22 loss.
With the unique nature of the draw, the team will get the chance to redeem themselves and push towards an all important top four position.
After the game last weekend, the team sits in sixth position but only two wins off the team in fourth place, Wyong Roos.
The Warriors win helped them to equal first on the NSW Cup competition ladder and will be looking to push the Penrith Panthers for the minor premiership.
The Cutters will be buoyed by the return of Russell Packer this week who has impressed since his return to the game.
Also named in the team this week is hard-running Luke Page, Craig Garvey and exciting young half, Adam Clune.
The visitors have a dangerous team across the park but the main players the Cutters will have to look out for are Glen Fisiiahi, Mason Lino and big forward, Sam Lisone.
