The Hunters turned up in their 2017 season jersey in front of a host crowd of sponsors and the media for the full team announcement and the naming of the captain and vice captain.
Chairman of the SP PNG Hunters Graham Osborne was given the opportunity to make the announcement of the captain and the vice-captain for the season, with Wellington Albert named as vice captain for this season.
"I didn’t expect to be captain but I am one of the senior players in the team and it is an honor to be captaining the team this year.
"I would like to thank the coach and the Hunters management for having the trust in me and choosing me as captain. I am the captain but all the players are leaders in their own right," Boas said.
Wellington Albert was also surprised by the announcement of his appointment as vice captain.
"I am very surprised by this announcement, because I didn’t get any word from anyone that I would be the vice captain, and I am looking forward to lead the boys this year.
"We have a great team of players with us here and they physically and mentally fit for this season and I am sure we will make an impact in this year’s 2017 Intrust Super Cup season," Albert said.
The SP PNG Hunters have their season opener against the CQ Capras at Browne Park on Saturday March 4, their first home game will be in round two on Sunday, March 12 at 3pm against the East Tigers at the National Football Stadium in Port Moresby. Post Courier/PNG Today
