This news was confirmed this week. The first Hunters game that will be televised will be the trial match against the Ipswich Jets on the 21st of this month in Queensland. The game will kick off at 5:30pm.
Hunters CEO Brad Tassell said having games televised would make fans hungry for the full SP Hunters Intrust Super Cup season which will be live and exclusive to TVWAN.
“It’s pretty unique in the world of rugby league – or in fact any sport – that a trial match is televised live. But there is a huge amount of interest out there and we certainly don’t want to disappoint our fans, “said Tassell.
He urged Hunters fans to purchase a Digicel Play Box and subscribe to a suitable prepaid plan to watch all the Hunters games this year.
“I would urge fans to secure their set top boxes well ahead of the trial match and upcoming season,” said Tassell.
The match against the Ipswich Jets will be the only trial game played by the SP Hunters. The club’s first game of the season is against the South Logan Magpies in Brisbane on Sunday the 8th of March. PNGLOOP
