St George Illawarra Dragons Captain Ben Hunt is set to play his 300th game this weekend. It will make him the 46th player in NRL history to ever reach this career milestone.
Hunt joined The Rush Hour with Leisel, Liam & Dobbo to reflect on his career so far, speaking on his start from Dingo in Central Queensland, to being scouted by the Broncos, and now looking forward to his 300th game this weekend against the Cowboys.
To celebrate the Queenslander’s NRL achievements, Queensland Rugby League created a mural to commemorate him, highlighting one of his State of Origin highlight moments in Fortitude Valley.
Hunt is tipped to be part of this year’s Maroons team, which will be named in the next week.
The Dragons Captain also commented on his club’s recent consecutive losses, telling The Rush Hour with Leisel, Liam & Dobbo he tries to not let it get to him.
“It’s getting used to blocking the noise out, it’s been around us for a while. I think it’s taken a toll on the guys in the team. We’re not far off, we’ve lost five games in a row by two points” Hunt said.
