Hunt’s safety-first plan
KARMICHAEL Hunt is hungry but he won’t rush his Super Rugby comeback for the sake of pushing his claims for a Wallabies call-up.
After a breakout season for Queensland, Hunt is very much on Michael Cheika’s radar for Australia’s first Test of the winter, on June 10 against Fiji, in Melbourne.
A knee injury, though, is stalling him. The in-form fullback missed the Reds’ loss to the Chiefs and is only 50-50 to make his return against the Rebels on Saturday.
“I’ve had this injury in the past before, played on it and ended up having to get surgery,” he said. “So I don’t want to go down that track.”
