Mackey Cutters

Hunters in narrow win against Mackay Cutters

An early penalty in yardage from the home side put Mackay on the attack early. As they’ve done in most games this season though, the Hunters turned up in defence to repel the Cutters on both edges.

A try saving tackle from Junior Rop on his own line summed up the defensive intent PNG started with in this one. 

As the game settled into a grind, both sides played conservatively in yardage. They traded blows through the middle of the field and either died with the ball on the last or kicked to the corners. 

Marum credits win to team work

Hunters returned to Port Moresby today after defeating Cutters 34-20 last Saturday night at Mackay in round five of the Intrust Super Cup 2016 season.

Coach Michael Marum said on arrival that the win was good for the team despite a lot of traveling leading up to the match.

Marum said everyone played their part to achieve victory.

“It was good to see most players putting in extra effort with the bench players coming in as well.
