    The Cutters name is being dropped because their major sponsor has withdrawn.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.

    Your kidding, would not have thought that tbh. Generally though it seems a fairly one sided JV imo

    Don't want to play under the Illawarra coach, and who can blame them!

    NSWRL only post the teams, not the officials.

    But don't let that get in the way of your personal vendetta...

    Well don't you feel special up there, neigh neigh neigh.

    -----------------------------------------------------

    Saw on the Triple M facebook page that the Illawarra team will now be relaunched as the Steelers after all. Interesting given St George's opposition to this 5 years ago.

    Word out of Wollongong today is that Steelers Leagues is sponsoring the team, but the side will remain known as Illawarra RLFC using the STGI badge.

    Saw on Triple M Facebook - which they got from an erroneous report on the RLW website. As @Scott Gourley's Lovechild said, they're Illawarra RLFC and playing under the Dragons logo.

    Ridiculous name Illawarra RLFC sounds like a soccer teams name.

    Hopefully they announce the name change and its supposed to be soon with new sponsors.

    No, just Illawarra RLFC. No Dragons, no Steelers (apart from the sponsorship on the front)

    As has been said already, they're wearing the Dragons NRL team's logo.

    They explained during the Illawarra/Penrith fixture that the reason it wasn't changed to Illawarra Steelers is because of the new league in place next year where they'll become St George Illawarra Dragons again in the second-tier. So, if I'm not mistaken, this means goodbye to Wentworthville, North Sydney, Newtown, and Wyong as well (to replaced by their parent club names).

    Could have the trickle on effect to see Newtown back in the RMC and Norths go down there alongside Wests again.
