Intrust Super Cup round 7 Highlights - PNG Hunters V Mackay Cutters at Kalabond Oval, Kokopo. 2.30pm Sunday April 19, 2015.
Hunters hold on against the Cutters
A late second half surge was not enough to get the Cutters a win over the Hunters at Kokopo last Sunday afternoon, with the home side holding on to record a 26-24 win.
The Cutters were aiming for their sixth straight victory, while PNG were looking to get back on track with a win after two tough away losses.
The Hunters started the match well with Thompson Teteh scoring in his return to the team and held a 20-6 lead at halftime.
However, after scoring one more try to start the second half for a 26-6 lead, they let Mackay back in the game – with the visitors crossing for the next three tries.
It was not enough however, and the Hunters held on for win number three.
