They’ve called it News for the last six months, but now it’s Kokopo for the SP PNG Hunters.
The SP PNG Hunters will travel with all their gym equipment to East New Britain tomorrow.
Thompson Tete is back to the side after missing a grinding win against the Capras last weekend, while Albert Patak shifted to fullback to cover for Adex Wera, who is nursing an injury.
They’ve called it a News for the last six months, but now it’s Kokopo. Almost all their training equipment was tightly packed into containers, ready for shipment tomorrow.
The 20 selected players were on training, including fullback Adex Wera who will not take the field this weekend. Albert Patak will cover for him while Buiku Tiger Emere will play right centre.
Thompson Teteh is another hunter back with the pack after recovering from a thigh injury.
Coach Michael Marum says the relocation to Kokopo means the Hunters will be constant in their preparations right up to the match day for their remaining News games.
With the newcomers tag in the Intrust Super Cup campaign, Hunters already display classy football action, gaining overwhelming support from their fans both in their News and away matches.
Marum says, currently his side are placed in fourth position on 17 points going into round 14, however, they’ll keep aiming for the number one spot.
Hunters will be based at Queen Emma Lodge for the time being awaiting work on the Hunters village. This will also relish the opportunity to have at least an extra day to prepare for this weekend’s clash against the ninth-placed Souths Logan Magpies.
