Treat Karmichael like Benji?

The Broncos could do worse than bring back Karmichael Hunt.


Sure, he's 34 years old now and won't be able to offer that kamikaze style approach when running the ball back.


Remember that?


He had no fear.


Since then, Karmichael has done a fair bit.


He played 125 for the Broncos and of course won a premiership in 2006.



He made the big code switch and joined the Gold Coast Suns in 2011.

4 years on big money, playing 44 games for the Suns and managing one fairytale kick after the siren to the beat Richmond in 2012.


He then was on the move again, signing with the QLD Reds on some big money in 2015 and then shifting south to the Waratahs at the start of 2019.

He managed 6 tests for the Wallabies, combine that with his 11 caps for the Kangaroos and 10 state of origin appearances for the Maroons, it's fair to say that Karmichael Hunt has accomplished a fair bit in his career.

But now the value that Karmichael might hold could be a utility role comparable to what Benji Marshall is doing for Souths.


That sort of role.


Benji played 40 minutes for the Bunnies on the weekend and polled 1 Dally M vote - albeit that system may well be broken.


Karmichael could share his great experiences around the young group, help them on the training paddock and in particular the reasonably inexperienced Broncos backline.


That might be the role?


What position? He could play a few.



Without getting too excited, Karmichael looked pretty sharp for Souths Logan on the weekend playing in the centres.


With the club facing some tough times, we could do a lot worse than bringing in Karmichael and get him around this playing group.


If he's desperate to play again in the NRL, which he has indicated that he is, it may well not cost the Broncos much at all to put him on the books.
