Planning and preparations are stepping up for both the SP PNG Hunters and the Fijian club, Kaiviti Silktails. Once again both squads will be based in Australia. The Hunters will be playing once again in the Queensland Cup and the Silktails will start their second season in the NSW Ron Massey Cup competition.


The Hunters will continue to stay and train at the Gold Coast Performance Centre in Runaway Bay and the Silktails will be based in Mascot, Sydney and train at the Daceyville Police Citizens Youth Club facility.


SP PNG Hunters CEO, Scott Barker says he is excited for the club to pick up where they left off last year and carry that momentum over into the 2022 season. “Last year certainly wasn’t without its challenges but I am proud of the way the club responded. The playing squad in particular, showed great resilience and they will take plenty of confidence from the way they finished the 2021 season,’ he said.

The Silktails will have a new face on the training field too as former Fiji Bati international, Daryl Millard will be assistant coach to Wes Naiqama.


The Hunters are due to arrive in late January ready to start their attack on the 2022 competition on March 19th. The Silktails arrival in NSW has been delayed due to an outbreak of Covid in the squad, but they hope to be back on track by the end of January ready for their third assault on the Ron Massey Cup.
