Coach Michael Marum revealed this afternoon that Martin had asked to withdraw from the team.
“It is unfortunate for us but Rhyse has requested that he could not join the Kumuls this week and we respect that. He has some personal issues to attend to and have allowed him to do that,” Marum said.
Marum said Edward Goma will replace Martin. Goma will be the 11th SP Hunters player in the PNG LNG Kumul Team.
He said all 11 players were passed fit after their gruelling 22-18 win over Redcliffe Dolphins this afternoon.
