The current Hunters pivots include Charlie Simon at dummy half, William Mone at half back and Justin Tangue Yoka.
Yoka proved his worth when he made his debut against the Sunshine Coast Falcons in Port Moresby on Sunday.
“The dummy half and the half back need to be replaced because they are not creative and are not doing enough for the team.
“We have a lot of talented players who can play better football who are creative and can open space when the going gets tough,” said some disappointing fans after the Hunters registered their third consecutive loss – two at home and one
Former PNG Kumuls and current president of the Port Moresby Rugby League Dr James Naipao also made similar sentiments.
Dr Naipao said the good thing that came out from Hunters was the number six, Justin Tangue Yoka and that was his first game.
“The number seven (halfback) William Mone needs to go. He should be replaced.
“He’s entire time he is one line back in attack and staying at the back is when you are at the opponent’s red zone like say, 10 or 20 meters close to the opponent’s try line,” Dr Naipao said this after watching two Hunters games at the Oil Search National Football Stadium
in Port Moresby.
Dr Naipao said staying at the back for the entire 80 minutes of the game is nothing then being involved in directing plays when the going gets tough.
“When you are picking a team, you need creative players, not just players that can always follow structure football but pick players that can be create nothing out of something to score tries when the going gets tough,” Dr Naipao
Dr Naipao revealed that the current Hunters had nothing of that sort and certainly the halves needed a change in the team. Post Courier
