The stats are bleak for the Hunters as they head to Wynnum this weekend for round 2 with the Manly Wynnum Seagulls.In last year’s season at the BMD Kougari Oval, Manly West, the Hunters lost to Seagulls 36-18, but that’s in the past.The Seagulls, on the other hand, are hoping that history will repeat itself. Otherwise, two losses at home, at the start of 2016, will put a dent in their finals hope.The Hunters, with changes to the team, will see; 1. Stargroth Amean 2. Oti Tony (Bland Abavu) 3. Justin Olam 4. Thompson Teteh 5. Adex Wera 6. Ase Boas 7. Atte Bina 8. Henry Noki 9. Wartovo Puara Jnr 10. Esau Siune 11. Nickson Borana 12. Warren Glare 13. Ishmael Baikawa 14. Watson Boas 15. Noel Zeming (c) 16. Benjamin Hetra 17. Edward Goma and 18. Philimon Kimisive.Whilst it is true that the team have had some changes, they are still hot after the opening round win.This sets them up to make this game count as the Boas brothers, for the first time, will make history for PNG by playing upfront in key positions.Hunters are also running second on the 2016 Intrust Cup ladder.
