Ben Hunt release request blocked by St George Illawarra Dragons; Phil Gould criticizes Broncos link

Phil Gould has firmly dismissed any speculation about Ben Hunt returning to the Brisbane Broncos, stating that a mid-season move was never on the table. The Dragons recently met with Hunt and rejected his request to leave the club, with both parties agreeing to reevaluate the situation later in the year. Despite reports linking him to a switch back to the Broncos, Gould insists that this was never a possibility and that such claims were baseless. Gould also stated that the Dragons have no incentive to let Hunt go immediately and that their new coach, Shane Flanagan, would prefer to negotiate a swap deal with potential suitors for Hunt rather than simply allowing him to leave. Michael Chammas, a reporter for Nine, revealed that Hunt intends to stay with the Dragons for the remainder of the season but wants to be released at the end of the season. The Dragons want to prove to Hunt that the club is stable and has a plan for improvement before making any decisions about his future. If Hunt still wants to leave at the end of the season, the Dragons are open to discussing a solution. Paul Gallen expressed doubt about Flanagan’s ability to convince Hunt to stay and emphasized the importance for the Dragons to benefit from any potential deal involving Hunt. Gallen also acknowledged that players have the right to refuse to move, even if the club wants them to leave. He pointed out the difficulty of finding quality players to replace Hunt if he were to leave, highlighting the lack of available talent in the market.
