Cut Taumalolo, Faifai Loa to turn out for Cutters

ANTONY STEWART | April 11th, 2013

BARNSTORMING Jason Taumalolo will wreak his special brand of havoc for Mackay in the Queensland Cup on Sunday.

The big backrower was named on Tuesday in the North Queensland Cowboys team to battle Brisbane in tomorrow night's National Rugby League blockbuster, but did not fly with the team yesterday.

Mackay coach Kim Williams last night confirmed Taumalolo would start for the Cutters against Redcliffe.

Taumalolo will be joined by winger Kalifa Faifa Loa in the second-tier competition after he too was a late omission from the Cowboys, replaced by Ashley Graham, who has recovered from a rib injury.

Faifai Loa could hardly have done more to hold on to his spot on the right edge, scoring two tries in two games and being extremely solid under the high ball, particularly in last round's 30-nil win over Penrith.

But Graham's 24 tries from his past 27 games meant he could not be overlooked.

"He'll be back, that try-scoring freak, he'll be looking to get a few tries on the board," said centre Kane Linnett. "Him and Tatey (Brent Tate) have played a lot of football together on that edge, hopefully they'll have a really good game for us."

Coach Neil Henry admitted Faifai Loa was unlucky to be sent back to play for Mackay.

"I think (Graham) had earned the right to come in over the top of Kalifa," he said. "Even though Kalifa has been very good the last couple of weeks ... Ash's experience on that right edge will be good for us."

Tackling machine Dallas Johnson was also ruled out after he suffered a head knock against the Panthers.

"He suffered delayed concussion," Henry said. "It's a decision the club has made following the right medical protocols ... with a six-day turnaround there's not enough time."

Henry said he would decide on who would replace lock Johnson in the starting team after today's training session.

Glenn Hall is most likely to make the switch, with Gavin Cooper elevated from the bench into the starting backrow.

Ashton Sims and Joel Riethmuller would come on to the bench and Clint Greenshields become 18th man.http://www.townsvillebulletin.com.au/article/2013/04/11/379159_sport.html

Reborn Cutters Turn Giant Killers

Curtis Rona Mackay Cutters

THE Mackay Cutters claimed a second-straight win over an early season premiership favourite with a 34-18 victory over the Redcliffe Dolphins yesterday.

Mackay took full advantage of their arsenal of NRL-contracted players, while the Dolphins missed a host of first team regulars through injury and NRL duties.

Jason Taumalolo was dominant up the middle for the Cutters and tested the Dolphins defence with every carry, while North Queensland Cowboys-contracted team mate Kalifa Faifai Loa was a constant threat on the edge.

Cutters halves Anthony Mitchell and Matt Minto out-pointed their opposite numbers with a better kicking game that turned the Dolphins around regularly.

Meanwhile, Redcliffe were missing regulars Nick Slyney and David Hala to Broncos duty and were forced into a re-shuffle after losing mercurial fullback Joe Bond in the 20th minute with a suspected back injury.

The Cutters silenced the crowd early after the right edge combination of Bureta Faraimo and Curtis Rona crossed for two tries in the opening 10 minutes.

Young Redcliffe five-eighth Zach Strasser showed plenty of skill to combine with Paul Ivan twice to put the Dolphins in front 12-10 five minutes from halftime.

But a try to Cutters' winger and XXXX man of the match Liam Taylor saw Mackay take a 16-12 lead into halftime.

Redcliffe returned after the break with plenty of fire, with captain Petero Civoniceva doing his best to lift the home side with some surging runs and offloads to have the Dolphins pushing for a try.

But a failed Strasser chip kick led to a length of the field try for the Cutters, finished by Faifai Loa, and broke the Dolphins momentum.

The Dolphins looked to be back in the game after another strong run from Civonceva led to a Joe Bradley try with 15 minutes to go, but some sloppy defence on the line from the Phins saw Sam Hoare score and the Cutters push the lead to 28-18.

Michael Comerford crossed for the visitors with three minutes remaining to give the Cutters a 34-18 win over last year's grand finalists.

MACKAY CUTTERS 34 (Kalifa Faifai Loa, Bureta Faraimo, Curtis Rona, Michael Comerford, Liam Taylor, Sam Hoare tries; Liam Taylor 5 goals) def REDCLIFFE DOLPHINS 18 (Paul Ivan 2, Joe Bradley tries; Liam Georgetown 3 goals) at Dolphin Oval.

Is This The Breakthrough Year For Mackay?

THE Mackay Cutters recorded their third-straight win last night after producing a whirlwind finish to topple the Norths Devils 34-16 at Virgin Australia Stadium.

Courtesy of a Jarrod Wallace double, the Devils hit the front 16-14 after 60 minutes.

But the Cutters turned it on the final stages to grab an impressive round six victory and a share of the competition lead.

Having only made the finals once – back in 2010 under the coaching of Paul Bramley – the Cutters finally appear to be delivering on their promise and loom as a genuine title threat even at this early stage of the season.

Last night, the Cutters controlled the tempo of the first half to lead 14-6 at the break.

The Devils lifted though to put the hosts under pressure, but ultimately the Cutters’ class told in the final 20 minutes of the match.

Norths went into the match without suspended back-rower Chris McLean, whose presence on the edge was a huge loss for the Devils.

Mackay fullback and former Raider David Milne showed his class with two tries, while giant winger Bureta Faraimo chimed in with a fine double of his own in the six tries to three victory.

For the second time in two weeks, Mackay sharp-shooter Liam Taylor booted five goals to keep the scoreboard ticking over nicely for the home team.

The Cutters brought in Cowboys enforcer Ashton Sims and former Melbourne Storm young gun Matt Constantinou before kick off, with the duo replacing Pulou Vaituutuu and Michael Comerford.

Mackay is back at home next weekend for a showdown against the in-form Tweed Heads, while Norths will pick up two competition points courtesy of the bye.

MACKAY CUTTERS 34 (David Milne 2, Bureta Faraimo 2, Curtis Rona, Dean Webster tries; Liam Taylor 5 goals) def NORTHS DEVILS 16 (Jarrod Wallace 2, Namila Davui tries; Luke Samoa 2 goals) at Virgin Australia Stadium.
