He said the game was physical but off the field, “the people are friendly even though they want us to come here and lose, we always feel welcome as people here have something special about rugby league,” Zimmerle said.Tweed Heads captain Samuel Saville said: “Even though Hunters are always a tough team to beat, away or at home, we believe we put up a strong performance which got them off the edge before they came back in the last minute to take over and we are also proud of our performance and also, thanks to the amazing crowd that made us feel as if we are playing to the beat of their cheers.”Saville said it was a great game indeed and they were proud to be here and play in PNG, where rugby league is a well-recognised sport and “even though  we did lose but we hope to build and get motivated through this performance so we can get a win next time on our turf.”last_img
