HE suffered a major disappointment in Origin I on Wednesday, but Ben Hunt’s Dragons teammates haven’t felt the need to really around their No. 7 this week.
Hunt was one of Queensland’s best in their 22-12 loss to the Blues and fullback Matt Dufty believes he’ll bounce back quickly against Canterbury on Monday.
“Benny’s pretty professional, he’ll keep the Origin stuff at Origin and club footy at club footy,” Dufty said.
“He’ll want to come out and prove a point that he’s in a good team, he’s still a great player and I think he’ll be ready to rock and roll on Monday.”
It was a sentiment echoed by back-rower Tariq Sims, who was part of the Blues squad.
“I don’t think I need to pick him up, I thought he was one of Queensland’s best,” Sims said.
“He kicked the ball really well, he took the line on, he was always asking questions and always probing. I think out of the Queensland side he’s one of the guys who played really, really well.”
