PNG Hunters v East Tigers preview

The only match played outside of regional Queensland this weekend will see two desperate teams meet at Port Moresby’s National Football Stadium. The Hunters suffered a heartbreaking loss to the fast-finishing Dolphins last weekend while the injury-hit Easts Tigers were a fraction off the pace against the Magpies in their Round 19 loss.

 Easts were seemingly cruising towards a finals berth and perhaps even a top three finish a number of weeks ago. But the Intrust Super Cup ladder has changed quite drastically over the past few weeks, with three teams – Ipswich, Souths Logan and Wynnum Manly – now all within two wins of Scott Sipple’s Tigers. But it’s certainly not panic stations for the Tigers, who are one of only two sides to have beaten the Hunters on their home turf in 31 games.

In milestone news, Hunters pair Thompson Teteh and Adex Wera are within one touch down of equalling the Hunters’ most prolific try scorer in Israel Eliab (30).

National Football Stadium on Sunday, July 24 – 3.05pm
Referee: Jarrod Cole
Head-to-Head: Easts 2, PNG 1, Drawn 1
