Episode 19 - Karmichael Hunt

July 16, 2017


"The one thing I learnt very quickly at the Broncos and around the senior guys was that you need to work hard to get better, talent gets you through the door but hard work takes you a long way, Locky, Gordy, Webcke, were always working hard at their craft before training, after training, in the gym it was a non stop work ethic that propelled them to great success. It's something I learnt very early on and something I hope I preach by actions as a 30 year now, you reap what you sow" 


My special guest is Karmichael Hunt. Karmichael is a 3 sport professional athlete and the current inside centre for the Australian Wallabies and Fullback for the Queensland Reds. His distinguished career includes playing rugby league at the Brisbane Broncos and representing the QLD Maroons and Australian Kanagaroos, while in the AFL he played for Gold Coast Suns.​
