Mackay travelled south with a point to prove after a last-start drubbing at the hands of Souths Logan, but it was the home team striking first.
It took only seven minutes for the Falcons to cross through their big-man Patrice Siolo, displaying some sparkling, late footwork to pierce the line and barge over.
With a blistering start to 2021, the Falcons enforcer continues to solidify his reputation as one of the competitions best props, playing big minutes and getting through a mountain of defensive work.
The home team kept their foot on the accelerator and started testing the Cutters’ edges with their halves delivering some crisp service to their powerful outside backs.
Centre Will Toloi had an afternoon to remember – not only crossing for his first try in the Intrust Super Cup, but he got himself across the white strip twice more, bagging a hat-trick along with today’s player of the match honours.
The avalanche of points continued throughout the first half with the Falcons heading into the half-time break having scored 28 unanswered points.
