The SP PNG Hunters Board and Management have reluctantly accepted the resignation of Head Coach Stanley Tepend, effective immediately.

Tepend has regretfully advised the club that he is leaving for personal reasons and no longer feels that he can give the role the attention it deserves.

The SP PNG Hunters Board and Management are disappointed to see Coach Tepend go and would like to thank him for his services over the past few years with the Hunters and for his long term involvement in PNG Rugby League as a whole.

Tepend served as an Assistant Coach of the SP PNG Hunters during the 2022 QRL Hostplus Cup season before taking over as Head Coach for the 2023 competition.

The SP PNG Hunters CEO and Football Committee have already begun the process of securing a new Head Coach for the upcoming season and are confident all processes will be in place before preparations begin for their 2024 QRL Hostplus Cup campaign.
