Biography:

Proudly sponsored by St. George Leagues Club.

Captain Ben Hunt is back for his seventh campaign with the Red V after linking up with the club ahead of the 2018 season.

With 17 Origins and 15 Tests under his belt, Hunt has crafted quite the rugby league career and has showed few signs of slowing down.

The soon-to-be 34-year-old won back-to-back Dragons Medals in 2021 and 2022 and is also two-time winner of Queensland’s prestigious Ron McAuliffe Medal.

He joined the NRL’s ‘300 Game Club’ a season ago and has been the club’s leading Dally M Medal vote-getter in each of the past three seasons.

His NRL debut came for the Broncos back in 2009 with his maiden Kangaroos nod coming in 2014 and a Queensland gig in 2017.
