SP PNG Hunters Coach

Aiton embraces first coaching gig

For PNG Hunters coach Paul Aiton, since taking up his new role, it’s been both exciting and scary at times but he has been loving the challenge so far.

After a rollercoaster start to his debut season as Hunters Head Coach, former NRL and Super League star Paul Aiton is slowly but surely finding his feet as he continues to maneuver the team around and through the 2024 season.

Mone improves

Marum said Mone defended better, only missing two tackles throughout the match.

“Small guy defending big boys on the edge, and takes a lot of effort to put those big guys down. Again they (Pride) had a lot of sets, their halves and hooker had the game in their hands, we were on the back foot all throughout the game,” Marum said.  

“Hopefully he backs up from last weekend. I’ll probably give him a 5 out of 10 for last weekend game. If he can get that up to a 6 or 7 it would be good enough for us.”
