The SP PNG Hunters have officially drawn to a close their 2023 QRL Hostplus Cup season, following a presentation dinner at the Stanley Hotel & Suites, Port Moresby on Thursday, 31st August.

The Hunters 2023 campaign can only be considered a success as the proud Papua New Guinean club oversaw a significant roster overhaul this year alongside various changes in the coaching and high-performance staff.

To finish narrowly outside the Top Eight on the 2023 QRL Hostplus Cup ladder is a commendable achievement considering the relative inexperience of the Hunters current playing roster. There is no doubt that the club is heading in the right direction and this campaign is another step towards that ultimate goal of being regular finals contenders in the QRL Hostplus Cup competition.

The SP PNG Hunters commemorated their 2023 campaign at the Stanley Hotel & Suites, Port Moresby on Thursday evening, accompanied by all major club partners and sponsors as well as various media representatives.

The club would like to pay special tribute to South-Pacific Brewery, the Australian High Commission & Pacific Aus Sports Program, Kumul Consolidated Holdings Ltd, Kumul Petroleum, Newcrest Mining Ltd and Exxon-Mobil for sponsoring various awards on the evening.

SP PNG Hunters CEO Scott Barker said the event was an opportunity to thank all parties involved in the club’s 2023 campaign.

“As we’ve highlighted in the past, this club simply could not achieve what we are trying to achieve without the support of our partners and sponsors,” Barker said.

“We are extremely proud to be partnered with some of the most established and reputable brands in Papua New Guinea and we look forward to working closely with them into the future.”

The Hunt is now officially over for season 2023 but preparations have already begun for the 2024 QRL Hostplus Cup competition.
