Watson Boas and Sailas Gahuna have been omitted from the 18-man PNG Hunters squad that travelled to Brisbane today.
Hunters Coach, Michael Marum, says Boas has been ruled out by medical staff due to a knee injury, while Gahuna has been omitted as only 18 players can travel.
With Boas out this sees Ate Bina Wabo move into the halfback position.
Meanwhile, Marum has confirmed two Intercity Cup players will be joining the Hunters training squad. Marum added that both players will play for their franchise clubs unless the opportunity arises where they may get to play for the Hunters during the rest of the season.
The team has worked on defence all throughout the week, knowing their opponents this weekend Redcliffe have a far bigger pack.
