Former SP Hunters stars leave for new clubs

Former SP Hunters superstars, Edene Gebbie, Nixon Putt and Rhadley Brawa, have recently left the shores of PNG to join their new clubs.

Putt and Brawa left on Sunday afternoon, while Gebbie had left earlier for Wynnum Manly Seagulls.

PNG internationals Gebbie and Brawa have signed with Wynnum Manly Seagulls while former teammate Nixon Putt has joined the Norths Devils.

23-year-old Koiari man Gebbie has attracted attention with his energy and swift play – a large feat considering he’s a debutant in the Intrust Super Cup 2018 season.

His performance has earned him a Hunters rookie of the year award.

Queensland Rugby League said the fullback and winger is electric with the ball in hand, scoring 10 tries on the season and averaging 126 run metres per game.

His teammate Brawa brings with him a high level of toughness and determination.

The 28-year-old, from Simbu, started playing with the SP Hunters in 2017. He is a force to be reckoned with in the front lines.

Putt, from Western Highlands, also started with the SP Hunters in 2017 and has 5 tries to his name in the Intrust Super Cup competition.

The 24-year-old forward claimed the SP Hunters’ Player of the Year award.

All three will be playing against their former club when the Intrust Super Cup 2019 season kicks off.
