Coach Marum impressed

The main strategy for their upcoming games is defensive play, and Coach Michael Marum is determined to prevent the Hunters’ opponents from scoring.

He mentioned this after their arrival at the Jackson’s International Airport this afternoon.

It was a great win yesterday and the SP PNG Hunters have achieved their goal of getting into the top 6.

Coach Michael Marum said though there were a lot of errors during the game, the boys had defended well.

“We’re focusing on our defense all throughout the past 3 or 4 weeks,” he stated.

“In the last 4 games we only allowed our opposition to score not more than 2 tries.”

The South Logan Magpies were able to score a rather desperate try in the second half of the round 21 clash. In spite of that, the coach said he was impressed with the Hunters’ performance.

Meantime, the team is quite concerned with Watson Boas’ back and shoulder injury.

Coach Marum says he will be taken to x-ray, but he doubts whether the half-back would be able to play against the Tweed Heads Seagulls at the Piggabeen Sports Complex in New South Wales on Sunday.
