PNG Hunters set for Sunshine Coast Falcons

The PNG Hunters are set for round 4 Intrust Super Cup showdown against the Sunshine Coast Falcons  at the Sunshine Coast Stadium this afternoon. The Falcons are fresh from a rousing victory against the Burleigh Bears last weekend. Down 14-0 early in the match – they fought back to 14-12 before the break and ran away with the match in the second all while putting in a perfect defensive effort to claim a 26-14 win. The Hunters however were pushed all the way in a seesawing match against the always troublesome Tweed Heads. A late try to Atte Bina levelled the scores, while Noel Zeming’s conversion attempt bounced off the post to go over and clinch them a thrilling win. This Sunday, Hunters will be without co-captain Adam Korave who has pleaded guilty to a Careless High Tackle charge and will miss the next two games. Jye Ballinger has been added to last week’s otherwise unchanged line-up for the Falcons. The two sides will compete for the Pacific Allies Cup, with the Falcons the current holder, having won the corresponding match last year. PNG’s 36-10 loss to the Sunshine Coast in that game last year was their second biggest loss in the competition, with their heaviest defeat (60-28) coming at the hands of Tweed Heads.
