Sport: PNG Hunters to play Northern Pride

12:35 pm on 24 February 2015

The Papua New Guinea Hunters will play a pre-season trial match against the Northern Pride in Cairns on Friday, after last weekend's match in Ipswich was cancelled because of Cyclone Marcia.

The game against the Jets was to be the Hunters only pre-season hit-out but after mother nature intervened the defending Queensland Cup champions came to the party.

The Northern Pride also hosted the Hunters last February in their first ever game, which the PNG side won, but the Cairns club proved too strong in their two regular season clashes during 2014.
