PNGRFL CEO Bob Cutmore announced that preparations for the 2016 season were being finalised with the squad to assemble next week for pre-season training.
Cutmore applauded coach Michael Marum and his coaching staff for a wonderful job so that not much would change except for some slight alterations to be announced as soon as the squad assembles.
He said the aim of the Hunters program was to create a pathway for players to advance to the elite level.
If the players got scouted and engaged by overseas clubs that would be a bonus as it would open up spots for other young men to step up to have a shot at making the team.
