Just a reminder that the SP Hunters have a bye this weekend. They are currently second on the QRL Intrust Cup Championship Table, just a point behind leaders Townsville Blackhawks and a point ahead of third placed Burleigh Bears.

For a few years now the PNG Brisbane Bougainville Community Group and their supporters have assisted in raising funds for the purpose of assisting the people in Bougainville Province to improve the health services on the Island. Our people went through more than two decades of hardship in between conflicts and virtually everything was destroyed, families misplaced and some ideals of family structures were destroyed. We have already assisted the Arawa Hospital, Buka Hospital, Pororan, Hagogohe, Gagan, Tearouki, Suir, Hantoa & Kekesu. This fundraising is specifically for the Haku Clinic on the far North of Buka and Buka Hospital.
We are some of the lucky people who have had the privilege and opportunity to assist people who have suffered after a civil war. I would appreciate it if you would consider helping us in our journey to help more of our people by attending our fundraising event. We understand if you are busy on the day, and should you choose to make a donation, we would be very grateful. Please have a look at the event details below.

PNG LNG Kumul back rower Rhyse Martin has withdrawn from the Kumuls team to meet the Fijian Batis in this weekend’s Pacific Test due to personal reasons. Coach Michael Marum revealed this afternoon that Martin had asked to withdraw from the Kumul team as he had some personal issues to attend to.
