Hunters jump two spots after win

The SP PNG Hunters have risen up two spots following their first win against the Central Queensland Capras on Saturday.

Their 28-10 victory at McIndoe Park, in Emerald, ensured the boys left the fourteenth rung behind in the Intrust Super Cup competition.

The SP Hunters came out firing from the start, making up for the missed opportunities from their first five matches.

Though it was the Capras' 500th Intrust Super Cup game, the PNG boys left no stone unturned as they put points on the scoreboard in the first 10 minutes of the round 6 match.

Coach Michael Marum told QRL Media that he was pleased with the young guns in his team; and with Ase Boas, Moses Meninga and Brendon Gutono on the edge.

From the last rung of the ladder, the SP Hunters are now in 12th place while the Redcliffe Dolphins are in the thirteenth-spot after conceding a 20-12 defeat to the Ipswich Jets. The Capras are now in the fourteenth spot.

The Hunters will face Ipswich Jets in Round 7 on Saturday at the National Football Stadium.

Marum said they have not won at home this year, so are looking forward to a good game this weekend.
