The 24 man train-on squad were given a break on December 23 for the festive season and in three days’ time will be back to the grind to see who will make the final cut for the 2018 season in the Intrust Super Cup.
The current SP Hunters players – Ase Boas, Watson Boas, Wartovo Puara, Stanton Albert, Nixon Put, Moses Meninga, Enock Maki, Stargroth Amean and Willie Minoga will resume training on Thursday as well.
The final squad will be named by mid- January.
Lined up for the Hunters is a pre-season match against the Brisbane Broncos in Port Moresby on February 24, 2018.
The Intrust Super Cup kicks off in March of this year, and the Hunters will begin their campaign for back-to-back premierships when they take on the Ipswich Jets at home at the National Football Stadium on Sunday the 11th.
