After an impressive start to their campaign in season 2022, notching up four consecutive matches on the trot, the Gulf franchise unfortunately could not maintain that winning streak, finishing off the season outside the top six.

Upon their return from the Christmas break training has intensified with more emphasis on defense and endurance which will set the platform for the second period of their preseason training.

Since preseason training resumed last week, Coach Stanley Tepend and Assistant Paul Aiton have been impressed with the attitude and commitment shown by the players especially their work ethics at every training session which has been intense and challenging.

Kumuls Return To Training

The players were allowed a couple of weeks off for recovery; and on Coach Tepend’s list are two members of the original Hunters team currently undergoing rehab.  

From the six Hunters players picked for this year’s RLWC only four are back in camp. Rodrick Tai, Emmauel Waine, Sherwin Tanabi and Weza Tenza while Hunters co-Captains Keven Apo and prop Sylvester Namo have secured contracts overseas.

Today’s training session also had a few surprises.
