SP Hunters vice- captain Wellington Albert will become Hunters player No. 50 when he makes his debut from the bench in Sunday’s Intrust Super Cup round 2 clash against East Tigers at the National Football Stadium in Port Moresby.

And returning to the starting line-up is experienced utility back Adex Wera who will start in the centres.

These are the two changes coach Michael Marum has made to the team following their 22 -16 win against CQ Capras in Rockhampton last weekend.

“Wellington will make his debut in the SP Hunters colours for the first time this weekend. The doctor has given him the all clear to play and he will become Hunters player No. 50 when he runs on at some stage during the game. It will be a big occasion
for the youngster especially at home,” Marum said. Karo Kauna Jnr, Ismael Balkawa and Watson Boas have been named on the extended 20 man team.

The 20 man squad is:
1. Bland Abavu
2. Butler Morris
3. Adex Wera
4. Willie Minoga
5. William Aquila
6. Israel Eliab
7. Ase Boas (captain)
8. Henry Wan
9. Sailas Gahuna
10. Esau Siune
11. Nixon Put
