CUTTERS speedster David Milne is looking to keep his form going as he brings up the half century in the Intrust Super Cup in a vital clash with Tweed Heads at Moranbah tonight.

The fullback scored one of four tries for the Skills Training Mackay Cutters last week as they snapped a losing streak with a win over Burleigh Bears at Virgin Australia Stadium.

They will be keen to back up with a winning double in his 50th Q-Cup match tonight at Darryl Bourke Oval.

Milne joined the Cutters this season from Canberra Raiders, where he played with feeder club Souths Logan, and said his move to the Cutters provided him with a chance to concentrate more on his football.

"At Souths Logan you'd just turn up to play for them on weekends," he said.

"It's a lot different here, we're training here together as a club all the time."

Milne works as a pool technician with Dowdens Pumping, where owner Steve Dowden is a Cutters sponsor.

He said the Cutters could be a lot higher on the ladder, but were far from giving up on their semi-finals hopes.

"I'm not really happy with my form so far this season but I started to run a bit better on the weekend," he said.

It will be Milne's first match at Moranbah, where a big crowd is expected for a rare Intrust Super Cup match and Super Saturday, which will be highlighted by the town's Moranbah Miners playing Wests Tigers in the Skills Training Cup Mackay competition.

It will also mark the return to Moranbah of Tweed coach Ben Anderson, who coached the Miners before joining the Seagulls, the club he steered to last year's minor premiership.

Kickoff is 7.30pm.
