Sport: PNG Hunters expects tough game against Falcons

11:49 am on 3 April 2015

Despite being at opposite ends of the table, the Papua New Guinea Hunters aren't taking this weekend's game on the Sunshine Coast for granted.

The injury-plagued Hunters thrashed Tweed Heads last week to move up to second in the Queensland Cup standings, with three wins from four games.

Head coach Michael Marum believes his players still have room for improvement in defence, which they are working on week by week.

He says they're also expecting a tough game against the win-less Falcons.

"The Sunshine Coast Falcons haven't won a game yet but there's a lot of experience now - they've got that feeder arrangement with the Melbourne Storm and last year they were sitting at the bottom of the ladder, they came up here [to PNG] and gave a really good game and we only managed to win by one point. It's going to be tough in front of their home crowd so we just have to prepare well and make sure we really focus on our game."
