PNG Hunters set for Mackay Cutters

The PNG SP Hunters are set for round 5 Intrust Super Cup match against the Mackay Cutters. They will be looking to re-enter the winner’s circle when they take on the Cutters this Saturday night. The visiting Hunters dropped their first game of the season last weekend against the Falcons who seized the initiative with an impressive opening to their second half on their way to a 28-20 win. The Hunters will welcome back Stargroth Amean at fullback this week and coach Michael Marum has also made positional changes with Wartovo Puara moving to halfback and Adex Wera to centre. Thompson Teteh and Atte Bina have not been named. The PNG side will also have extra motivation to push for victory, having never won in Mackay (they have recorded a loss and a draw). After letting a maiden victory slip through their fingers in Round 3 against Easts, the Cutters were unable to match it with the Bears last Saturday, going down 36-18. However, the side is relatively unchanged from last weekend, with Tone Susuga coming in for Joss Boyton (personal reasons). Despite being named in the back-row, the Cutters will have to do it without Patrick Mago who will miss the next two games after pleading guilty to in a Dangerous Throw.   

The PNG Hunters name their side as; 1. Stargroth Amean 2. Oti Tony (Bland Abavu) 3. Noel Zeming (c) 4. Adex Wera 5. William Aquila 6. Watson Boas 7. Wartovo Puara 8. Henry Noki 9. Warren Glare 10. Esau Siune 11. Nickson Borana 12. Tuvi Lepan 13. Brandy Peter 14. Ishamel Baikawa 15. Enock Maki 16. Philimon Kimisive 17. Edward Goma 18. Benjamin Hetra and Coach: Michael Marum.
