Hunters will clash with Seagulls on Sunday

The Hunters will have another tough challenge this weekend when they take on the Tweed Heads Seagulls in round 17 of the Queensland Intrust Super Cup at Piggabeen Sports Complex tomorrow.

The PNG Hunters had traveled to Piggabeen to the scene of their biggest ever loss, a heavy 64-28 defeat back in 2014.

That was the only time Tweed Heads had managed to defeat the Hunters in five encounters. However, the Seagulls came incredibly close to an upset back in Round 3 at the National Football Stadium, with only a late Noel Zeming conversion making the difference.

In recent weeks, the Hunters have returned to their bad old days in the competition where they struggle to win away from home.

They rectified that last year but this year they have again found it hard to defeat teams in Australia and have lost their past four away games.

Hunters however, are looking to bounce back as they gear up with a strong side to crunch the Tweed Heads after their loss last weekend against the Norths Devils.

The PNG side is currently fourth on the ladder, playing 13th-place Tweed heads tomorrow at Piggabeen Sports Complex at 2.05pm.
