The Mackay Cutters RLFC are a semi-professional rugby league football club founded in 2007 based in Mackay, Queensland. They, along with the Northern Pride, will be one of two expansion teams for the 2008 season of the Queensland Cup. Their home ground will be at the Mackay & District Junior Rugby League grounds in Mackay. The Labor government also made a pre-election promise to upgrade the stadium at the JRL grounds to the tune of $8 million. The Cutters act as a feeder club to the North Queensland Cowboys, who play in the National Rugby League.
The Cutters in their debut season finished in the bottom half of the ladder. In 2009 the Cutters came last on points difference.
The Cutters missed out on the finals in 2008 and 2009 before Paul Bramley arrived on the scene to get them one game shy of the 2010 grand final. The cutters had been one of the clubs 'flying under the radar' all season. The finished the normal season at sixth place and defeated minor premiers Sunshine Coast in week one of the finals and ended up making it to week 3 of the finals when they were defeated by Norths Devils in the Prelimary final.

In 2011 it was announced Paul Bramley was announced from his contract and signed with Burleigh. The cutters signed the best possible replacement, Anthony Seibold a former Brisbane Broncos player, ESL club Crusaders assistant coach, South Wales scorpions coach and Wales assistant test coach. The Cutters narrowly missed the finals in 2011 after an injury havok season where the squad used 43 players. The Cutters also made a major coup by signing former Warriors and Cowboys half Grabt Rovelli who had 95 NRL games to his name. He was a star player for the QLD Residents match played in 2011.

Anthony Seibold has already begun work on the 2012 season signing big name players David Milne from the Canberra Raiders, Rohan Ahern from the Brisbane Bronocs, Jason Schrinack from the Wests Tigers, Andrew Gay from the Wales 4 nations squad and Michael Thomas from the Raiders. They also signed former Toyota Cup players Aidan Day from the Northern Pride, Matt Minto from Easts, Dean Webster from North Sydney and Chris Gesch from Central Comets. Dean Tass and Kelvin Nielson are the players they have signed from Mackay teams (Souths and Wests). Anthony Seibold has signed 11 players and only lost 4 for 2012. Seibold wants depth in the squad for 2012. They also signed (in the mid season of 2011) talented youngster Bureta Farama who scored 21 tries in less games for Mackay club Wests after moving up from Brisbane. Farama was named Cutters rookie of the year after scoring more tries than more games played in 2011. In early 2012 foundation and most capped player Chris Giumelli decided to retire from rugby league.
