FULLTIME SCORE: Tweed Heads 26 v Hunters 18
FULL TIME COMMENTARY:
Too many penalties, too many incomplete sets cost the Hunters. Coach Mark Marum will need to fire up the boys this week in preparation for the final series.
Despite the match loss, the Hunters consoled themselves with the QRL 2017 Intrust Super Cup Minor Premiership series win. A major achievement for the competition’s relative newcomers.
Also congratulations to Ase Boas who is the first Hunters player to crack the 200 point mark.(202 points)!
