Lomai Replaces Goma in Hunters Squad

Share the News

SP Hunters forward Timothy Lomai will replace Edward Goma in this weekend’s 20-man extended side to take on the Burleigh Bears at the National Football Stadium.

Coach Michael Marum will trim down the squad to 17 by the end of the week.

After last weekend’s narrow win against the Ipswich Jets, halves Wartovo Puara and Ase Boas remain in doubt ahead of this weekend’s match due to injury concerns.

Bland Abavu was outstanding at fullback in last week’s match, which sees him again in the starting line-up.

He may take over the goal kicking duties if Boas is unable to make the team.

Justin Olam and Thompson Teteh hold their positions in the centres with Butler Morris and Adex Wera on the wings.

Co-captain Adam Korave has been included in the team after last weeks suspected PCL injury against the Jets.

Noel Zeming still remains out with a few more weeks still left for him to recover from injury.

The Burleigh Bears lead the Intrust Super Cup competition, despite a 25-24 loss last weekend in a close encounter against the Northern Pride.

They will be hoping to beat the Hunters for the first time on home soil, while the Hunters will fight to keep their home game record in tact.
