Sport: PNG Hunters make one change for home debut

8:31 am on 6 March 2014

There is one change to the PNG Hunters squad for this weekend's first home match against defending Queensland Cup rugby league premiers the Mackay Cutters.

Noel Joel has been called in to the 18-man squad, in place of Gonzella Urakusie, with one player to be omitted prior to kick off.

Coach Michael Marum says the team has been careful to ensure they return to their regular weekly routine following Sunday's historic win against the Redcliffe Dolphins.

The team is expecting a sell-out crowd at the Kalabond Stadium in Kokopo for the first game of a three-match home stand.
