Karmichael Hunt’s remarkable sporting life will reach another moment to saviour on Saturday when he makes his Wallabies debut.

The 30 year old former rugby league international and Gold Coast Suns marquee player will line up at inside centre on Saturday when the Wallabies take on Fiji in Melbourne.

Hunts off field dramas since crossing to rugby have been well documented but coach Michael Cheika (pictured) says Hunts performances this year were the only consideration in handing him his first Wallaby cap.
