Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Mackay Cutters Rookie Cutters Clinic

Kids from around the region had the opportunity to meet and get a free coaching session from their local heroes at the Mackay Cutters Rookie Clinic which took place at the Whitsunday Sportspark last Friday.

At the Clinic, the kids were coached by players and were put through drills to sharpen their rugby skills.

The afternoon was filled with laughs and knowledgeable insight for the youngsters before ending the session with a fun game of touch and a free sausage sizzle.

The Cutters were in Airlie Beach ahead of their Saturday night match against the Burleigh Bears which saw hundreds of people attend to show their support.

The sunset created a beautiful backdrop for the start of the match in front of the Airlie Beach crowd.

Burleigh Bears pulled an early lead in the match but the Mackay Cutters narrowed the gap with a converted try.

The Cutters displayed some great defence in the second half but unfortunately couldn’t hold the Burleigh Bears out forever.

The final score was 12-28 to Burleigh Bears.

The Bears now sit top of the table and the Cutters are in sixth.
