Sport: Familiar faces return for PNG Hunters

Some familiar faces are back for the PNG Hunters rugby league team, who play a trial match against the Ipswich Jets this weekend.

Wartovo Puara & Thompson Teteh have been named in the Hunters squad after returning from a six-week trial with NRL Premiers the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

Head coach Michael Marum says, while they would have loved to see the pair stay in Australia, it's a bonus to have them back to strengthen their squad.

The Hunters begin the Queensland Cup proper in just under three weeks against the South Logan Magpies.
