PNGBUZZ TV: Hunters Head Coach Matthew Church explains:

Relocating the Hunters to take part in the Queensland Intrust Super Cup comes at an added cost but was the best option in ensuring the teams inclusion in the competition.

The selected squad will go through pre season training and preparations as normal.
