PNG Hunters thrash Central Queensland Capras 46 - 14

THE SP PNG Hunters continued their fairy-tale run with a comprehensive 46-14 win Central Queensland Capras in Kalabond, Kokopo.

That victory maintained the Hunters’ 100 percent record of three wins from three games and should push them to somewhere at the top of the Queensland Intrust Super Cup premiership table. 

It was also the highest margin for the Papua New Guinea side, sending out early signals that the newcomers in Australia’s second-tier competition are going to be increasingly difficult to run down when teams allow them to set the tempo of the match.

 Tries were scored by Thompson Teteh, Adex Wera, Roger Laka, Willie Minoga and two tries each from Noel Zemming and George Benson.

The first try, scored by Teteh, was great play from Israel Eliab and David Loko chipped over the top for Teteh to score under the post. A successful conversion had Hunters leading 6-0.

Benson scored the second try for the Hunters 10 minutes later from a great dummy half run, taking the score to 10-0.

Capras came back, scoring their first try five minutes later which brought the score to 10-6. Another try by Adex Wera had the crowd on their feet as the Hunters took the lead 16-6.

Ten minutes to half time Capras scored their second try which brought the score to 16-10.

Following that in a beautiful sweeping movement Patak offloaded to Benson to score in the corner and a successful conversion from the sideline by Zemming brought the score to 22-10 at half-time.

Hunters continued to deliver in the second half, scoring more tries. First try in the second half went to the Capras following a couple of errors from the Hunters which took the score to 22-14.

Hunters continued their winning streak, scoring through Zemming who converted his own try for a scoreline of 28-14.

Wartovo Puara made a weaving run from dummy half and offloaded to Willie Minoga who scored under the post,s taking the score to 34-14.

Another beautiful off-load from Loko and a quick pass to L,o then to Laka who touched down at the corner withthe  Zemming conversion successful again from the sideline, which took the score up to 40-14.

With a few minutes to full time a long cut out pass went  to Patak, who picked up on the bounce and scooted down the sidelineand  inside to Zemming to score under the post with the final score, 46-14.
