Couldnt see a thread on it so here it is.. High-profile Gold Coast AFL recruit Karmichael Hunt has been labelled money-hungry after signing a lucrative eight-month deal with French rugby union club Biarritz.
With Gold Coast set to enter the AFL in 2011 and Hunt's rugby league commitments over, the former Brisbane Broncos player has signed a $300,000 contract with Biarritz, which leaves him poised to become the first Australian footballer in the professional era to play NRL, AFL and rugby union. http://www.foxsports.com.au/story/0,8659,26222977-23211,00.html
I personally thought he would be keen to get stuck into AFL training, hes going to have to focus bloody hard on AFL if he is going to get anywhere at all and he will need all the time and training he can get. Wont be a surprise at all if he dosnt make it with a mindset like this.
RIP Marco Simoncelli 1987 - 2011

Solid $$$ for eight months work.
It'll actually be interesting to see how he performs in all three codes, good luck to him.

I agree with your comment Becks. You can't just rock up at an AFL club and think you can just make the first side easily. He needs to be getting into a lot of training if he wants to be playing Round 1 in 2011
