    Just look at that defensive record of Wynnum's, fourth best in the competition!

    If only they could score some points. Two tries on the weekend, one from a kick and one from dummy half. Says it all.

    Are Ipswich still playing that contract football brand and are PNG playing an exciting brand like they did a few years ago?

    The Jets are still maintain their contract football. They still score a lot of amassing long range tries. But their defense is terrible which is why outside of the top 6 at the moment.

    The Hunters have a lot more structure these days and very rarely go out of it. Their defense and discipline has also improved and they do not give opposing teams much. In attack they no longer relay on any one individual. In last weeks game they had 7 different try scorers.

    Thats good. Though, I was hoping for a lot of success so that it would take off as a better alternative to what we have.

    Yes I saw footage of their last few games after my post and could tell they have gone conservative, structured football. Disappointing.

    Yes the Hunters have definitely gone conservative but the Boas brothers and Hooker Puara jnr are never afraid to change things at certain times during games to play whats in front of them.

    There was a period last week in the 2nd half where they started a set from a meter out of their own try line and they only got forward 30 meters from their 5 tackles. The Devils next set started well inside the Hunters territory and ended back a meter out on the left hand corner. It was the same place where they had started the previous set from. Again they got bashed by the devils compressed defense for the first 2 tackles but than on the 3rd tackle the hooker and the half's spread it out wide within their own 20 meter mark and they broke down field. Another tackle later they scored a try to kill any moment the Devils had built up.

    How To Stop The Hunters

    By Tony Webeck / qrl.com.au

    Take a look at the ladder at the halfway mark of the season and you’ll see that the PNG Hunters are sitting pretty at the very top.

    Take a look at the draw for the second half of the season and you’ll soon realise that it is going to take something rather extraordinary to displace them.

    Starting this weekend against Souths Logan, the Hunters play five of their next six games at the National Football Stadium in Port Moresby, a venue in which they have only suffered two defeats since it opened last year, an 18-12 loss to Sunshine Coast in Week 1 of the finals.

    The only team to enjoy success against the Hunters at their home this year are the Norths Devils and coach Mark Gliddon said it was some advice from Brisbane Broncos scout Brian 'Pinky' Edwards that got them on the front foot.

    "I rang 'Pinky' before we went over though and asked his thoughts and he said, ‘silence the crowd’," said Gliddon of Norths' 32-18 win earlier this year.

    “I said, 'How do you do that?' and he said, ‘if you're scoring tries, the crowd ain't saying anything.’

    “It's a bit of a gimmick, but we used it and that was what we said to each other, ‘Silence the crowd’. If you can silence the crowd it means that you're in front.

    “I'll be very surprised if anyone else beats them over there. I could be wrong, but they're very hard to beat over there.”

    They've also proven difficult to beat in Queensland this season, with the Falcons the only other team to have gotten the better of them this year with a 38-14 win at Sunshine Coast Stadium in Round 6.

    The Hunters have had wins in Rockhampton, Brisbane, Mackay, Ipswich and Burleigh to cement themselves as the competition front-runners, but Gliddon by no means believes they are unbeatable.

    Level at 12-12 at half-time last Sunday, the Hunters scored two tries in the first five minutes of the second half in their game against the Devils at Bishop Park to take control of a game that could very easily have panned out differently.

    “We dropped the ball twice over the line in the first half and both times it was because of their heavy defence. They certainly don't take any prisoners,” Gliddon said.

    “What we did [in Round 4] – and we tried to do it again on the weekend – is to slow the game down a little bit. Any points on offer you take, you kick for touch rather than keep the ball in play and you walk to scrums because they're massive counter-attackers and from scrums your defence is set.

    "I also think they've got some real deficiencies on their short sides. They don't move up on their short sides and I feel that's how we got them the first time.

    “They're beatable in certain areas, but having a full-time roster that trains, eats, drinks, sleeps rugby league is a massive advantage over everyone else.”

    Did you know?

    The Hunters v Magpies match on Sunday will mark the 3000th game in the history of the Intrust Super Cup and will be a meeting of two of the form teams of the competition. The Hunters have won their past six games on the trot and Souths Logan their past four to sit first and fourth on the ladder respectively.

    I remember back in the days of the Port Moresby Vipers the blistering attack through individual brilliance and the woeful defense giving up almost 100 metres every set of six. The Crushers sent their defensive coach up there to try to help them out. Talk about the blind leading the blind.....

    Ben Hunt playing for Ipswich Jets this weekend. Maybe their free flowing style of play will bring the best out of him.

    Michael Marums decision to rest some key players for the Hunters back fired. But good on the Tweed for showing up and taking it to the Hunters. They played really well.

    I reckon the Souths-Logan v Redcliffe will be a cracker!

    Should be the televised game. Some of the TV choices this year have be ordinary.

    A replay of the 81 Grand Final first leading into the Souths v Redcliffe game at Davies today with special sideline comments from Mick Reardon.:blush:
