    Ex-Bronco Steven Michaels devastated by Karmichael Hunt’s drug claims

    STAR footballer Karmichael Hunt has been accused of betraying one of his best mates to the Crime and Corruption Commission over the cocaine scandal which rocked Queensland sport.

    Steve Michaels, a close friend and former teammate, is facing 10 counts of supplying cocaine, but has vowed to fight the charges, denying claims made by Hunt to investigators.

    It is almost three years since Hunt, Michaels and almost a dozen other Queensland football stars were embroiled in the CCC investigation into a coke cartel operating across two states.

    Hunt named his former Brisbane Broncos teammate in a 12-page dossier detailing allegations against some of the cartel’s chief players.

    Michaels, who has just finished a stint in the English Super League, was charged as soon as he returned to Australia last month.

    His Gold Coast defence lawyer, Campbell MacCallum, told The Sunday Mail Michaels was devastated by the allegations made in Hunt’s statement and the end of a decade-long friendship.

    “He is extremely disappointed that a person who he considered to be one of his closest friends would do this,” he said.

    “He strongly disagrees with the allegations (put forward by Hunt) and he will be disputing any allegations Karmichael has made.”

    Hunt could be called as a Supreme Court witness to be grilled over his statement while lawyers for accused drug trafficker John Touma — identified as ‘Leather’ in Hunt’s statement to investigators — have also indicated they would seek to cross-examine the Wallabies rugby union star if that case proceeds to a trial next year.

    In his detailed statement, which named almost a dozen professional footballers and former players, Hunt said he was introduced to ‘Leather’ by Michaels.

    “While I was at the Broncos I was aware that Steven used cocaine on occasion,” he wrote.

    He said Michaels served as a go-between to deliver drugs before the now infamous 2014 end-of-season trip for the Gold Coast Suns.

    Hunt had just finished a four-year AFL contract with the Gold Coast Suns when news of the scandal broke, while Michaels was a fan favourite at the Gold Coast Titans in the NRL.

    Mr MacCallum said Michaels had not been given any explanation from Hunt over why he gave the incriminating statement to detectives, and said Michaels looked forward to having his day in Southport Magistrates Court later this month.

    “What really disappointed him was that someone he considered a close, personal friend wouldn’t even contact him (over the statement),” he said.

    What a complete dog! Hunt may find himself in a tricky situation if he is dobbing in drug suppliers....I doubt they will mess around with. Prick deserves it too.

    His original choice in a coercive hearing is to lie and face potential perjury charges or tell the truth which may include dobbing in his mates..so he got put under pressure and gave a statement. at the end of the day they are engaging in criminal behaviour and if noone "dogged" on criminals there would be a hell of a lot more crime. Criminals deserve to be punished i dont feel sorry for any of them.

    He would've been better off trying to help his mate get off this shit, not doping him in.

    Adults will make their own lifestyle choices and take responsibility for themselves, its always going to be a contentious issue but you shouldn't point the finger if you come undone.

    The only problem is when it comes to drugs, the stitches will be the ones put into the body after the autopsy has been done on his body to determine how he died.

    Quote: "Former rugby league player Ben Darcy has been arrested and charged over a cocaine distribution ring". This was the opening line in today's Sydney Morning Herald, with a similar headline. I know it's a whinge, but does anyone believe that if it was one of our ex-players, the story would have led with the words "BULLDOGS PLAYER....".

    © Getty Images Australian rugby player Karmichael Hunt. Australian rugby union player Karmichael Hunt is once again in trouble with the law after being charged with drug possession.

    The 31-year-old Queensland Reds star was arrested and charged with two counts of drug possession after being searched by police at Brisbane's Fortitude Valley at about 12.40am on Saturday.

    Hunt was issued with a notice to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on January 29.

    It's not the first time the former NRL and AFL player has been in trouble for drug offences, after he was fined in March 2015 after pleading guilty to four counts of possessing cocaine.

    Hunt was one of several professional footballers to be caught up in a Queensland Crime and Corruption Commission investigation into a cocaine trafficking ring operating in the state's southeast.

    The investgation also led to several Gold Coast Titans players being charged.

    Hunt, who made his debut for the Wallabies this year and has played six times for the national team, was also fined $30,000 and suspended for six weeks by the Australian Rugby Union (ARU) after his 2015 incident.

    A 32-year-old man who was with Hunt at the time has also been issued with a notice to appear.

    AAP has contacted the ARU for comment.

    He will probably dob in his dealer.

    Even as a 17 year old at the Broncos he was a complete arsehole, so he hasn't changed.

    Either he's been used as a lure to cut a deal, OR he's a dumb cunt.

    Get investigated for drugs, then head out and get caught for possession. LOL
