Player Bio

Karmichael Hunt hit his stride in Rugby in 2017 and has recommitted to the St.George Queensland Reds for a further two seasons to try and reap the rewards of his successful transition to the code.

His love of Rugby began as a high school student at Brisbane’s Anglican Church Grammar School, but it was in rugby league that he began his professional career, enjoying a successful period with the Brisbane Broncos before making the switch the Rugby in the French Top 14 and then AFL with the Gold Coast Suns.

Hunt is just the second Australian athlete after Israel Folau to compete professionally in all three of the country's winter football codes - having played in the NRL, AFL and now Super Rugby. He is also a dual international, having represented both the Kangaroos and the Wallabies.

Enjoyed a standout season for the Reds as he established himself as the side’s starting fullback. His form in Super Rugby earned him a Wallabies call up for the June Test series and he became a dual international when he made his Test debut against Fiji in Melbourne. He started at inside centre in all three of the Wallabies' Tests, including a standout performance in Australia's win over Italy where he delivered crisp cut out passes to set up two tries. Missed much of the second half of the year due to ankle surgery following the Super Rugby season. Made his return from injury for the Wallabies in an exhibition match against the Barbarians and joined Australia on its spring tour.
Added a further 10 caps to his Reds total and was invited to train with the Wallabies ahead of the June Test window, but persistent groin injury ruled him out of any further rugby involvement for the year.
Made his Super Rugby debut as starting flyhalf in a difficult and disappointing opening round match against the Brumbies. Endured a disrupted first season at the Reds, with suspension and injury limiting him to just nine appearances in his return to Rugby. Following Super Rugby he was invited to train with the Wallabies in their preliminary camp ahead of The Rugby Championship, but was not selected for the tournament. Karmichael featured in all but one of Brisbane City’s matches in their undefeated National Rugby Championship campaign.
