South Logan Magpies

Hunters lose to Magpies

It was a very tough week for Coach Matt Church leading up to Sunday's clash, which was impacted by injuries and suspension.

While the Magpies fielded the likes of NRL players Tom Dearden, Tesi Niu and Cory Paix alongside veteran Karmichael Hunt, the Hunters named their only available men to complete the team but they still looked a serious threat midway through the second half when centre Jokadi Bire surged through a gap to close the deficit to 10 points. 

Hunters maintain winning streak

The Hunters’ defense were too strong for the Magpies as they kept them at bay with a 12-point victory.

The SP PNG Hunters have maintained their winning streak as they thrashed the South Logan Magpies 18-6 this afternoon in Brisbane.

9 minutes into the round 21 game and the Hunters were the first to put a mark on the board through a penalty goal.

3 minutes later, Junior Rau registered the team’s first try of the match.
