Puara looks to claim history

Puara has been named in the Hunters’ team to play for the Kokoda Cup – which is up for grabs each year when PNG and the Bears meet in late April.

This match falls on Anzac Day and the Hunters hope that is enough time for Puara to recover from an ankle injury suffered in last Saturday’s impressive 32-12 win over the Sunshine Coast Falcons.

If Puara can recover, the foundation Hunters player will break the team’s Intrust Super Cup games record by recording his 115th appearance – one more than 2017 premiership teammate Adex Wera.

United Sisters retain softball title

Runs scored by Priscilla Mocke and Florence Daple put United Sisters in front at 2-0 after the completion of the first inning.

The Bears hit back in the sixth inning scoring all their five runs through Francine Malum, Nadia Bais, Lisa Polum, Francisca Kinit and Delin Bais.

09ERS fight back to beat Bears
