Morris out; Abavu in for Norths Devils clash

The inclusion of Bland Abavu into the SP Hunters starting side is the only change that has been made for this Sunday’s round four clash against the Norths Devils at home at the National Football Stadium.

Hunters coach, Michael Marum said Abavu who sat out last Sunday’s match due to suspension starts on the wing in place of Butler Morris.

“We are still trying out new combinations on the edges. Stargroth Amean played exceptionally well on his return at fullback so Bland Abavu will start on the wing.

“Paul Wawa retains his spot on the other wing while Butler Morris will be rested this weekend,” said Marum.

Marum said Noel Joel, Ismael Balkawa and Karo Kauna Jnr have been named in the extended 20 man squad.

The 20 man squad is: (Three to be omitted)

1) Stargroth AMEAN, 2) Bland ABAVU, 3) Adex WERA, 4) Willie MINOGA, 5) Paul WAWA, 6) Israel ELIAB, 7) Ase BOAS (captain), 8) Henry WAN, 9) Gahuna SILAS, 10) Esau SIUNE, 11) Lawrence Tu’u, 12) David LOKO, 13) Stanton ALBERT, 14) Watson BOAS, 15) Moses MENINGA, 16) Enock MAKI, 17) Wellington ALBERT, 18) Noel JOEL, 19) Ismael BALKAWA, 20) Karo KAUNA Jnr.
