Some serious underselling of Hunter going on in this thread

Kudos to the author

Stengle says HI to all you doubters. He was much younger and more consistent with bad behaviours than Lachie. 

We must get some pace in though in the mids and on some flanks. Please !!

Kossie will take some sprinting classes each morning over the Pre Season!

Hunter is a very smart hard running link player.

Yes, he's not quick.  But he's adequate.

Yes, he doesn't kick it far, but he's accurate and plays within his limitations.

Some seem to focus more on a player's weaknesses while completely disregarding their strengths.

Hunter is a quality wingman.  It will be harder for the opposition to shut down one wing if Hunter is on the other.  Langdon would love another specialist wingman in the side who knows what they're doing.

It's a smart move by the club to at least explore the opportunity.

Hunter has a rather big kick actually, and a left footer too.  not someone id chase real hard but i wouldn't be against him pulling on a Red and Blue top

What’s the price? And how’s he travelling; a fresh start is needed but also, sometimes footy isn’t everything…

Dogs seem to be encouraging him to explore his options. Pick in the 30's perhaps.

its the more $600k a year with 2 years still to run that i don't think we can afford on a player like him

I'd suspect if the Dogs are pushing him out, they'd be open to paying a small portion

I would also assume the only way this move happens, is if we lose Harmes (and his 500k (?) a year contract) which balances things out quite nicely

i highly doubt that, id say the reason they are allowing him to look elsewhere would only be in a club takes his salary. 600k a year id be chucking at better players than him.  Or lure a Finn Callaghan type

No idea what Harmes is on, he resigned in 2019 so it wouldn't be massive,  probs that $450-500 area

And his wage? 

He’s a good player with a neat kick and a desire to engage in chains up the ground. 

Would love to know whether his mindset is of someone who is better off outside footy.

Hunter has had some well documented recent issues, but his body of work is impressive.  He's a fantastic two-way runner.

A new environment can often work wonders.

Let's not forget, he's a premiership player AND he won a Best & Fairest at the Dogs.  Nothing to sneeze at.

Might be a swap with Tomlinson. 

Saints then take Cordy.

Dees pick up Lienert.

Under that situation I can tolerate Hunter

yup this i can deal with.

i also rate Lienert,  he would be behind Turner but a good cheap depth player

I rate him.  2018 Sutton Medal, 2016 Premiership player.  Turns 28 in December, played 173 games and a lot of those have been excellent, including a couple of games over 40 disposals.  Seems to play well against us.  As has been pointed out by others he's strong defensively and offensively.  He'd be an asset.

Isn't he getting pushed out because the dogs (Bont) don't think he's sole focus is a premiership?

Don't get me wrong, before 2021 I would've loved to have him but I don't see the point in getting him when we could be getting games into Howes as an example.

Super talented player who may just relish being given an outside running role with lots of inside bulls.

Wanted Amon but i think this could be pretty good left field option.

He walks into our wing position over any of our current players.  He is better on the offensive side of the ground so would make a perfect complement to Langdon who is more defensive winger.   

Has really nice left foot and regularly nails his passes....We are looking for connection....having Salem/Bowey/Hunter in the team would sure help in that space.

I reckon the hierarchy have identified the need for a specialist winger, this would make sense if we were in for Karl Amon from Port.

A change of scenery might be good for him, different culture always helps, his footballing ability speaks for its self another weapon on the outside is what we need.

Always thought he was a quality player, i believe our senior group can lead him in the right direction.

Go and get him Dees, players want to play for us at the right price, we are a destination Club.

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
