The 31-year-old appeared in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Monday to hear of his fate after he was accused of possessing cocaine and the prescription drug Xanax on a night out on December 30.

“(Hunt) is over the moon, he can focus on his training,” his lawyer Mr Magill said

He said the cocaine charge would be dropped at his next court appearance, and he had a commitment in writing from police. He still must face a charge relating to the Xanax.

Mr Magill did not know if Hunt was given permission to return to training.

“It’s still too early to say, that’s up to his manager to figure out,” he said.


He was stood down from all rugby activities days after the arrest and has not been at Reds training since.

The case returns to court on February 19 where Hunt where the verdict will be heard. The Reds and ARU are expected to make their decision on Hunt’s future after the case is finalised.
