Coach Michael Marum said there are options for the fullback position but Adex Wera fits into the number one position well.
“We have few players in the line up but Adex Wera will be a good fill in for this,” he said.
“We always have the team spirit to get into the field and play as a team but as we go along, reshuffles to the young ones on the team will be strengthened and fitted well enough to find a good combination.”
Marum said they would give a go on Adex (Wera), then after the two away matches, more reshuffles to the positions were likely to be made.
“With Stargroth Amean out, the line-up and improvement depends upon our player’s performances, but we are looking forward to another tough match against the North Devils in Brisbane,” Marum said.
However, young entries such as Brendon Gutuno and Edene Gabbie are in but their performances will still be monitored after rounds five and six.
Meanwhile, Junior Rau will become Hunter No. 63 after he was named in the starting line-up for this weekend.
Rau replaces Willie Minoga who was ruled out due to a shoulder injury sustained from last Sunday’s game.
Butler Morris has been named as centre while Patrick Morea and Junior Bobby have been named on the extended bench.
