Karmichael Hunt eyes rugby league comeback one way or another
Karmichael Hunt is making a comeback to rugby league with South Logan for the Intrust Super Cup, and he has his sights set on a coaching gig down the track.
It’s the next chapter in his three code career, and he told Bill McDonald it’s like coming home.
“I’m really excited to be back in Brissy, around the family but also more importantly familiar territory in South Logan, so exciting times ahead for me. ”
He said he has a few “good years of footy left in me” but has his sights on a transition to coaching.
“I definitely am looking to push into the coaching arena down the track, so that was the whole reason and the initial discussion with Jim McClelland and Steve Bretherton to get back into the Souths to make my way into the system but also transition into my coaching as well.”

Hunt later told Peter Psaltis a transition to coaching has been on his radar for some time now.
“It’s been a serious thought of mine over the past three years to really consider moving back into coaching.
“I know I want to continue to play at the elite level professionally but if it doesn’t happen after this year or next year, I’ll push into coaching itself at some point.”
Hunt also revealed he has spoken to his past coach Wayne Bennett about the transition “a couple of times over the last few years”.
“He’s just a really good guy who connects with his players.
“He sees the human side of the footy players first and foremost.
“I’m going to take a leaf out of his page … and make it my style.”
