Player Bio

Karmichael Hunt joined the Reds ahead of the 2015 season on a three-year deal.

His love of Rugby began as a high school student at Brisbane’s Anglican Church Grammar School.

The 28-year-old multi-code athlete started his professional career in the NRL, before playing Rugby Union in the French Top 14 and four seasons with the Gold Coast Suns in the AFL.

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.
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.
