Illawarra Cutters - 2016

It's common in Rugby League for teams to pay for their own success - and that is certainly the case for defending premiers Illawarra. Just five months after securing a nail-biting Grand Final victory and dominant NRL Intrust Super State Championship, the men from Wollongong have lost the likes of Shannon Wakeman, Adam Quinlan, Damian Sironen from their premiership side, along with successful coach Jason Demetriou and talented halfback Drew Hutchison to a season-ending ACL injury.

Incoming coach Mat Head has selected the 13 men he considers most likely to form his side this season, including captain Jay Gallagher.
