The rugby union No 8, who has represented Papua New Guinea in sevens and 15s, joins fellow Pukpuk backliner Jacky Marcus, who has been named in the Gurias squad.
Marcus was part of the Gurias squad in 2013 and 2014.
The other big name inclusions in coach Steven Nightingale’s 25-man squad are former Kumul centre Francis Paniu and Hunters winger George Benson.
Both men took time off from playing last year to focus on work and family commitments.
Paniu, who was part of the Kumuls squad to the 2013 World Cup, was to have taken up a contract with Super League side Hull Kingston Rovers at the conclusion of the World Cup, but the deal fell through after 26-year-old and fellow Kumul Enock Maki had difficulty obtaining a visa for the deal.
Benson, was a member of the inaugural Hunters in 2014 but chose to complete his training as a police constable, thus pulling out of Michael Marum’s squad last year.
Former Mendi Muruks half Stanley Olo is the other notable acquisition is Nightingale’s squad.
The Gurias have lost a host of talent from last year’s squad with Hunters acquisitions in John Ragi Jr, Watson Boas, Edward Goma and Tuvi Lepan leaving a sizable hole in playing stocks.
Ragi, who was released by the Hunters before the Q-Cup season started, has opted to stay in Port Moresby to join brothers Sebulon and Quinton playing for the Port Moresby Vipers.
“We have yet to name our co-captains soon, with the board yet to announce that,” Nightingale said.
“But training is going on well and we are all looking forward for the season.
