The Papua New Guinea Hunters insist there won't be any hangover from the Kumuls stunning win over Fiji, when they return to Queensland Cup action tomorrow afternoon.

The second-placed Hunters will take on the eight-placed Central Queensland Capras after back to back bye weekends.

11 of the Hunters squad were involved in PNG's win over the Bati, although Justin Olam will miss tomorrow's game to have a medical with the Melbourne Storm.

Head coach Michael Marum says the test match is now in the past, the team has had a chance to recharge the batteries and now want to deliver a top performance.

"Some boys had a good two-week break. We (who were involved in the Kumuls squad) got back in at the end of the week and started preparing for the Capras game. Our focus is on the Hunters and making sure we maintain our spot in the top six and hopefully play in the semi finals again."

Gahuna Silas won't feature tomorrow after being suspended from the Hunters camp and further training for failing to maintain the values expected of the playing group.

Meanwhile tomorrow's game will be the 50th appearance for Hunters co-captain Noel Zeming.
