Hunt’s safety-first plan

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - SPORT -

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.”
