Gordy And Dobbo Clash Over Reports On Ben Hunt’s Dragons Condition
Footy Talk League hosts Gordon Tallis and Ben Dobbin have clashed over reports St George Illawarra star Ben Hunt won’t stay at the Dragons if he is made to play hooker.
Hunt, 33, is on contract with the Dragons until the end of the 2025 season but The Daily Telegraph reporter and Footy Talk regular David Riccio says Hunt will request an immediate release if the incoming coach – whoever that may be – will task him with playing dummy half.
Tallis says Hunt has played his best footy wearing the No.9 for Queensland and Australia, while Dobbin says Hunt’s consistent week in, week out performances at halfback is where he’s done his best work.
But regardless of who is the Anthony Griffin’s full-time replacement at the Dragons, Tallis says Hunt should do whatever the new coach asks of him.

“Ben Hunt deserves the right to actually say ‘hey, listen, I want some input into who the next coach is and also, I’m not going to be playing No.9 for your week in week at the back end of my career’,” Dobbin said on Footy Talk.
