first_imgThe SP PNG Hunters will be resettling at the Queen Emma Lodge in Kokopo as they wait for the construction of their permanent accommodation to be completed.This came after the club was asked to relocate before May 31 by the Bomana Police Academy who will need the accommodation and training facilities for their new police intake.The Hunters will travel to Kokopo on Thursday 29 May and take up residence at Queen Emma until their accommodation and training facility is ready.The club gym at Bomana will also be relocated to Kokopo and will be packed up within two days and loaded away for shipping to Kokopo by next week.The team will be based in Kokopo full time and will play their next home game next weekend in round 14 against South Logan Magpies.PNG Rugby Football League CEO Brad Tassell confirmed that they had negotiated with Queen Emma Lodge to stay there in the short term until their club village is completed.He said they’re finalising an area where they’ll set up the gym until the village is completed.“We are working with Agmark on completing the village and we’ll make an announcement when that is done, however that wouldn’t take too long and should be completed in the next couple of weeks.“There are plenty of football ovals in the area to train including Kalabond oval so we don’t think that will be an issue,” he said.The Agmark gym, which is the training facility for the Rabaul Gurias, has been offered to help out with the Hunters training schedule but it also caters for other sporting codes in Kokopo.Tassell said the Hunters’ training schedule will be controlled by their coaching staff as they will be happy to share the Agmark gym facilities with other sporting codes in the area.Meantime, Hunters will travel to Rockhampton this weekend so they are in preparation for the game.Their Round 13 clash is against Central Queensland Capras at Marley Brown Oval, Gladstone this Saturday at 7pm.last_img
