The SP Hunters have named their squad for this Saturday’s trial game against the Ipswich Jets at North Ipswich Reserve from 5.30pm.
The match is the only pre-season trial for the Hunters and will be televised live on TV Wan.
Wartovo Puara and Thompson Teteh will take their places in the trial after returning from their 6-week train and trial stint with South Sydney.
“While we would have loved to see both boys stay with South Sydney it’s a bonus to have them back and it will certainly strengthen our squad,” Hunters coach Michael Marum said.
“We are very happy to have them both back and hope the experience has made them even better players. I know both players will be looking forward to a big season with the Hunters and the possibility of another crack at the NRL.”
The Hunters have named a 21-man squad with several players excluded while overcoming off-season surgery and injury including Adex Wera, Sebastian Pandia, Timothy Lomai, Noel Zeming and Edward Goma.
“We want to make sure the majority of the squad is fit and ready for the start of the season,” Marum said.
“It’s a chance for all the new boys to step up and show that they deserve a spot in the 18 for our first game against Souths Logan in three weeks’ time.”
The club's first game of the season kicks off against the South Logan Magpies in Brisbane on Sunday, March 8.
