Hunters to name co-captains

Following the departure of former team captain Israel Eliab, SP PNG Hunters will announce its co-captains.

Eliab will leave for England after he signed a one-year contract with the second tier London Broncos for the 2016 season.

The co-captains will have several additional roles and responsibilities over and above those of regular players.

Their additional roles include being second to the coach and an on field leader who has the ability to inspire the players and sometimes address umpires and the media.

Coach Michael Marum will be appointing the co-captains and is yet to confirm how many he will be appointing.

Marum said he has a few players in mind and they will be announced during the launch of the 2016 season on February 13, in Port Moresby.
