Hunters Edge Out Capras Second Time

The SP PNG Hunters edged out Central Queensland Capras for the second time of the Intrust Super Cup campaign.

The Hunters took sweet revenge 16-12, after the Devils put a scare in them in round twelve. 


It was a match worth noting for CQ Capras when they took the field with the blessing of Guy Williams in the back row.


A journalist by trade, Williams broke a long standing record of 151 games for the Capras side. 


Hunters came back from a losing streak from the Devils match in round 13, and fought hard, right to the bone as the match kicked off.


Capras, a very good team on paper, began a 40-20 attempt which sparked the invigorated Adex Wera to rise to the occasion.      


A much-fancied News side crossed the line in the likes of Rhys Williams in the corner, opening the scoreboard.


Hunters hit back 2 minutes after the News side score with a double long pass to set fullback Adex Wera to score under the post.


Willie Minoga scored a second for the Hunters to lead 12-6 at half time.


The Marley Browne Oval was absolutely chock-a–block on the night while the Hunters fans went into a frenzy as the match unfolded in the second half.  


Capras sensed the pressure and made every attempt to go past the spirited Hunters’ defence.      


Hunters’ locomotion David Loko made a positive return, after serving his suspension for breaching the club’s code of conduct.


Capras back rower, Guy Williams, wouldn’t submit in easily as he made a late comeback for his team with a much needed try to have Capras on 12 points.


Hunters remained a hard beat at the final hooter with 16 points to 12. They will now be ready to take on Magpies this weekend at the Kalabond oval in Kokopo.
