The Hunters are on a 14 game winning streak going into Sunday's clash with the Wynnum Manly Seagulls at Sir John Guise Stadium in Port Moresby.

They're tied with league leaders Townsville on 37 points but the Blackhawks remain in front thanks to a stronger points differential.

Michael Marum says all they can do is keep winning and hope other results work in their favour.

"I think already it's a big achievement by the team now - we're looking at finishing off the season number one [or] number two. Our goal is to finish in first place hoping to win all our remaining games and hope that Blackhawks lose one. We just have to focus on this weekend's game and then prepare well for the two remaining games before the finals. If we finish off number one, number two so we can have a week off and really work on our injured players".

A delegation from the Penrith Panthers will also be in the crowd for tomorrow's match.
