Karmichael Hunt has spoken exclusively to Triple M Brisbane's Grill Team following his recent switch from the AFL to Rugby.
Hunt, who joined the Queensland Reds last week, spoke to Greg 'Marto' Martin this morning about his move, life in the AFL and much more in his first interview.
The 27 year old has been labelled a mercenary by some but Hunt refutes that. His motivations are elsewhere.
"I think everyone is entitled to their opinion. But for me, money has never been a driving factor for me.
"I had numerous offers while at the Broncos to jump ship and set sail for better shores. It's more about the experience. It's about the fit, the culture and the challenge," he told Triple M Brisbane.
"You get rewarded for your talent. Sometimes dollars are a sore subject in the paper because people who don't play sport tend to think we are overpaid. It's the nature of the market.
"In terms of jumping for money, that's not the case," he explained.
