The Papua New Guinea Hunters extended their unbeaten run in the Queensland Cup to 15 matches with a come from behind 36-13 victory over Wynnum Manly in Port Moresby.

The visitors scored the opening try and led 13-6 at half time, but 30 unanswered points in the second half ensured the Hunters kept their impressive streak alive.

It wasn't until the 59th minute that the Hunters went in front through a try to Stargroth Amean.

Kato Ottio dotted down twice for the home side, who played in front of a packed crowd at Sir John Guise Stadium.

League leaders Townsville also won against fourth-placed Ipswich, which means the Blackhawks and Hunters are now guaranteed a top-two finish in the regular season, and get a week off in the first round of the playoffs.
