The 2019 SP Hunters training camp started off with 60 players mid-November.
By the end of November, the club announced the release of eleven players for personal reasons, failing medical /fitness tests and ruled out with injuries after week one of the pre-season training sessions in Port Moresby.
Fifty players remained after Coach Michael Marum added Jack Oii from Magani club, in the POMRFL competition, to the squad.
After week 2 of the SP Hunters pre-season training, six more players were released.
Coach Marum said training was getting intensive and the different methods they underwent showed these six players were carrying injuries, hence the release.
45 players were left in the train on squad after Jerry Teme from Hela Wigmen was added.
Three more players were further released after three weeks, leaving the number at 42.
The players will now take a break for the festive season and return on January 7, 2019, to resume their pre-season preparations for the 2019 Intrust Super Cup season.
