PNG Hunters set for ANZAC Day clash against Burleih Bears

The Papua New Guinea SP Hunters are set for Round 8 of the Intrust Super Cup match against Burleih Bears on ANZAC Monday.   The traditional Anzac Day clash between the Bears and Hunters looms as one of the Round 8 highlights, with a massive crowd tipped to pack into Pizzey Park. Along with the two premiership points, the prestigious Kokoda Cup is up for grabs on Monday. Burleigh will need to improve on last weekend’s performance against the Central Queensland Capras if they are to seriously challenge the joint Intrust Super Cup leaders PNG. The Bears leaked 38 points in their eight-point loss to the Capras, a scoreline that wouldn’t have impressed coach Jim Lenihan. In what has become the biggest day of the year for the club, the Bears will commemorate the Anzacs with a pre-game ceremony and will wear special Anzac jerseys which will be auctioned off after the game. Representatives from the Kokoda Army Barracks will be in attendance to present awards to the player from each team that best demonstrates the core values of the Anzacs. The Hunters have won the past three games against the Bears and are in strong form after a 38-22 win at home against the Norths Devils last weekend.
