One change made for this weekend

Coach, Michal Marum said Lawrence Tu’u comes in for Ismael Balkawa for the round six clash.

“Ismael will be out of this weekend’s game and we allowed Lawrence to come back in after he pulled out at the last minute last weekend.

“Until we travel, this is the 17 man squad we’ll probably go with,” said Marum.

Meanwhile, captain of the Hunters, Ase Boas will play his 50th game this weekend. Boas is Hunter #32 and debuted back in 2015.

Named in the extended squad is David Loko, Wawa Paul and U20 academy player, Muka Peter Kula.
