Karmichael Hunt now the Queensland Reds’ centre of attention

KARMICHAEL Hunt will play his first Super Rugby game at centre when he returns to the Queensland Reds line-up for Friday's clash with the Melbourne Rebels.

Hunt (pictured), who has been out with an adductor injury, will slide into inside centre, with Samu Kerevi moving to outside centre in place of Anthony Fainga'a, who suffered a head knock in last week's 58-17 defeat by the Crusaders.

"By returning Karmichael to the team at outside centre, we hope to get a little bit more talk and variation in the outside channel," coach Richard Graham said.

"I had always thought that given 10 or 12 games he'd naturally shift forward but we haven't seen too much of him through circumstance.

"Given our own circumstance, time is not something we have as a luxury and hence the change."

Jake McIntyre will make his Super Rugby debut at outside half for Nick Frisby.
