After a short stint with the Penrith Panthers in the Holden Cup, Wellington and Stanton returned to the country to join the Hunters pre-season train on squad.
The duo were given the nod by coach Michal Marum in the final 29-man squad that was named this month.
Wellington, who will be making his debut for the Hunters, said he is looking forward to this season.
“It’s good to be back to be representing my country playing for the Hunters. I got a lot of experience over there, three years of experience.
