Krewanty, who is the Hunters team manager, reaffirmed what coach Michael Marum said from Kokopo earlier this week, that training had gone well for the returning players and the new recruits.
“The mood is really good in the camp at the moment.
“The boys are just getting into the programme and I can tell they are enjoying it but at the same time, they are serious about their training,” Krewanty said.
“All I can say is the feeling in the camp with the mixture of old and new players is ‘wanbel’ (satisfactory), everyone is on the same page.
“They know what they have to do and they are doing their best to meet the standards set by Michael and head trainer Jason Tassell.”
Krewanty said the new recruits were still getting used to the regime and settling in but the enthusiasm they were showing at training and the interaction with the senior players was adding to the team dynamic.
With Marum expected to retain the 28 for the start of the preseason training after the Christmas break Krewanty said every player had certainly done their best to fit in since the offseason camp started last month.
Only two players have left the original 30-man squad named last month. Tau Fitzgerald was released to pursue a trial with the Canterbury Bulldogs in Sydney and Sam Koim pulled out to complete his law degree this year.
