Hunters looking to exact revenge

It will be sweet revenge for the SP PNG Hunters if they beat the Magpies in the round 21 clash this Sunday at Davies Park.

The Magpies have previously defeated the Hunters during their round 7 challenge at the National Football Stadium in April.

It was the April 22nd home game that the host team was looking to get the upper hand. Unfortunately for them, the Magpies walked away with an 8-point victory.

13 games later, the SP PNG Hunters will be meeting the Souths Logan Magpies again, but this time at the Magpies’ turf at Davies Park, Brisbane.

“We have a good record at Davies Park. Played all our games there and won it so that’s the advantage there,” says Coach Michael Marum.

Though the Magpies lost their game against the Blackhawks last weekend at Davies Park, Coach Marum wasn’t quick to dismiss them, saying they are expecting a tough challenge this Sunday.

As usual, it’s one game at a time for the boys.

Last week’s impressive performance over the Burleigh Bears has boosted them 2 places up on the Intrust Super Cup ladder.

The 7th-placed Hunters are now mentally and physically preparing themselves to meet the 9th-placed Magpies.

Meantime, the Hunters will be arriving in Brisbane on Friday, while a meet-and-greet has been scheduled for Saturday, August 4th.
