Hunters to battle Devils in Brisbane

first_imgAll eyes will be on how the Hunters perform on the road after three straight defeats put a dent in their minor premiership aspirations.Hunters have now won three consecutive games, courtesy of a generous run at home. They are now in the winners’ circle, downing the desperate Wynnum Manly Seagulls 18-4 last weekend on home soil in Port Moresby.For this weekend, Hunters team is set with co-captain Adam Korave allowed to play and the return of fullback Stagroth Amean.Korave is free to play after the Queensland Rugby League judiciary found there was no case to answer after he was placed on report for a reckless high contact tackle to a Wynnum Manly Seagulls player last Sunday.Amean is also set to make his return after passing a medical test. Amean has been out for the past three weekends after suffering a concussion.Meanwhile, despite occupying 10th position on the Intrust Super Cup ladder, the Devils believe they can feature in this year’s semi-finals.A win over the PNG Hunters will certainly enhance those claims.Hunters squad:1.
