It was an unsuccessful afternoon for the boys as they were defeated 30-12 at the Tigers’ home ground.
The Hunters, led by stand-in captain Wartovo Puara Jnr, were the first to register 2 points from a penalty goal, thanks to Watson Boas.
However, a Scott Drinkwater (captain) pass to Linc Port a few minutes later saw the Tigers extend their lead to 4-2.
Successful conversion by Brodie Croft added another 2 points for the Tigers.
The Hunters tried time and again to register a mark on the scoreboard but errors coupled with strong defence from the Tigers kept the boys at bay for the entire first half of the match.
The score was 16-2 when the teams returned from second half.
A valiant effort from Thompson Teteh registered the Hunters’ first try of the Intrust Super Cup’s round 13 match. Unfortunately, an unsuccessful conversion by Boas left the score at 16-6.
Minutes later, the Tigers returned fire with two more tries, further widening the score margin to 30-6.
A 50-metre run by Boas at the stroke of full-time and a successful conversion left the final score at 30-12.
Meantime, Wartovo Puara played his 100th game this weekend; making him the first Hunter to do so.
It was an added bonus for him when he stood in for an unwell captain Ase Boas.
