Ase Boas to lead team against Blackhawks tomorrow

With Hunters sitting on the third spot with 32 points and Blackhawks on fourth with 31, the round 23 clash will see a decider to find the team that will finish third on the ladder after the end of the regular season.

With co-captain Noel Zeming still out of the team and captain Adam Korave yet to be rated a good chance to play because of a knee injury picked up in the previous match against Jets, Boas was  named to lead the team for tomorrow’s game.
