After their third consecutive win yesterday, the Hunters have now moved into 9th place on 10 points with the top six now within reach.
Marum said the bye in round 9 was just what the Hunters needed after getting off to a rocky start to the season.
“We changed a lot of things we did wrong over the first seven weeks. I put some really strict rules in place and we went back to the drawing board.
“Most of the senior players that you see now leading the team were the ones that I pulled aside and spoke to them individually, and now they’re stepping up.
“Hopefully we can keep going but will continue to take it one game at a time.”
On yesterday’s win, Marum put it down to his side’s outstanding performance and also gave credit to his halves for stepping up to lead the Hunters to victory.
The Hunters will now prepare for this Saturday’s round 13 clash against the Easts Tigers in Australia.
