Wallabies Star Suspended Over Drugs Charges

Suspended.

Wallabies star Karmichael Hunt will continue to be stood down from rugby, after he appeared in court in Brisbane on Monday to face charges of drug possession.

Hunt did not enter a plea and his lawyer requested a three-week adjournment after being provided with new information by the police, local media reported.

“With today’s decision by the Brisbane Magistrate’s Court to adjourn Karmichael Hunt’s case for three-weeks, Rugby Australia and the Queensland Rugby Union have confirmed Hunt’s voluntary stand-down will continue through to the next scheduled Court hearing on February 19,” Rugby Australia said in a statement.

The Queensland Reds utility back was arrested with another man in Brisbane’s on 30 December and charged with possession. He was immediately stood down from all rugby, and will continue to be until the legal process has been completed.
