Suspension
July 8, 2020
Hunter is available to face Carlton in Round Six after serving his suspension for an alleged drink driving incident. He'll be considered for selection, according to coach Luke Beveridge. "We'll consider him for selection this week, and with (Lin Jong) going down there's a spot there. And with (Hayden) Crozier being suspended, there's another spot. So, we'll consider him. He's definitely ready to go."
ANALYSIS
Hunter collected 22 disposals in Round One and would have likely have had a role to play if it weren't for his suspension. His coach laid out the holes Hunter may have to fill, as a huge chunk of starters could or will miss this contest.
