Hunt set for debut
CODE leaper Karmichael Hunt will make his AFL debut for the Gold Coast Suns in their historic match against Carlton on Saturday night. Suns coach Guy McKenna confirmed the rugby league convert would play against the Blues at the Gabba after ‘‘ making every post a winner’’ in the pre-season. McKenna rated Hunt his third-best defender behind former Hawthorn premiership player Campbell Brown and Adelaide recruit Nathan Bock. The Gold Coast coach said he wasn’t surprised at the improvement the former Broncos and Australian Test fullback had made in his new sport.
