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 National Rugby League, before playing rugby union in the French Top 14 and four seasons with the Gold Coast Suns in the Australia Football League. 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.
