Hunters smash Seagulls 36-13 in second half blast

Seagulls lead 13-6 at half time.

But the fumbling and penalties given away in the first half became just a bad memory as the home team got their act going and ran in 30 points to nothing in the second half.

“Freight Train’’ Willy Minoga starred with busting runs up the middle and the rest of the team shared in the points barrage late in the game.

More to come from Troy Taule soon.

No tickets will be sold at the gates this Sunday.  The gates will open at 11:30am with the kick off at 2:30pm.

This will be the second Intrust Super Cup game that will be played at the Sir John Guise stadium this season.

Hunters make it 14 in a row

The Jets started out strongly and asked questions early on in the opening minutes of play.

After gaining some possession, the Hunters were given a penalty and opted to kick taking a 2-0 lead from the boot of Noel Zemming in the 8th minute of play.

The Hunters registered more points minutes later when quick hands sent Stargroth Amean over to score. Zemming added the extras to take the  lead to 8-0.

Straight from the kick off, the Hunters raced away through a line break and looked certain to score out wide.

Hunters aim for win against Ipswich Jets today

Both teams are in the top 5.

The Hunters are on 35 points in second place while the Jets are in close pursuit in third spot with 32 points.

For the Hunters, a win for them could cement top two positions.

A loss for the Hunters will allow the Jets to close in on second place with only one point separating the two.

From their last three encounters, Hunters won two matches.

The Hunters are undefeated in their last 13 matches and the late inclusion of utility Noel Zemming will provide a further boost for them.

Hunters weary of the Tigers

In previous encounters, East Tigers have beaten the Hunters twice and drew one.

The Tigers are also coming off a big 56-22 win over the Central Queensland Capras last weekend and will be looking to dish out the same treatment to the Hunters in front of their home crowd.

This will be the Hunters final home game in the Intrust Cup competition.

But the Hunters were just as impressive last week beating first placed Townsville Blackhawks in a nail biting 28-26 match.

Coach Michael Marum says preparations are going well for Sunday with a good feeling in the camp.
