Happy with Hunt

Taylor Hunt2Former Geelong midfielder Taylor Hunt has made an impressive transition into life at his new football home at Richmond.

Hunt, who played 63 games in five years with the Cats, was picked up by the Tigers as a delisted free agent late last year.

According to Richmond veteran Chris Newman, the hard-running 24-year-old is thriving at Tigerland.

“He’s been terrific . . . just one of those guys that comes in and fits in straight away,” Newman said on SEN.

“You hear that a lot, but he genuinely has blended in with the group really well, and he fits.

“So he’s one player that we’re looking forward to playing with.

“He’s a really honest sort of player, gives everything, can use the ball really well . . . and he’s a terrific ‘fella’.

“We’re really excited to see what Taylor can bring to our team.”
