0 The Cutters name is being dropped because their major sponsor has withdrawn. When the team was formed by a merger of Illawarra Leagues (not the same as Steelers Leagues) and STGI, to draw in sponsors they said that whoever sponsored the team was entitled to name the teams moniker. When Illawarra Coal came on board, they went with Cutters to tie into coal mining. I agree it's stupid to call the team Illawarra RLFC but play under the STGI logo. But to say this is some kind of conspiracy coming out of St George Leagues is hilarious. Also CC_Roosters, at the moment the Dragons 1st Grade team actually has more St George juniors playing than Illawarra juniors. But don't let the truth get in the way of a good story.
