The Illawarra Cutters will compete against the local Illawarra Coal All-Stars at Ziems Park, Corrimal on Friday.
This trial fixture will no doubt provide a good opportunity for players from both sides to impress their respective coaches and selectors leading into their respective seasons.
Gates open from 5:30pm with a gold coin donation entry fee with the funds going to the Kurt Drysdale Appeal.
Kurt is a former local junior rugby league player who suffered a serious neck injury early last season playing for Wentworthville in the Sydney Shield competition.
