Hard work in the lower grades pays off and Jaiyden Hunt is the latest benefactor of that, with the St George Illawarra Dragons re-signing the forward. 

Hunt, who will join the Dragons’ top 30 in 2023, has also re-signed with the club for a further two seasons until the end of 2024.

Joining the Dragons last season after a train-and-trial deal, the Brisbane native has since played four NRL games for the Red V.

Hunt knows he has work to do and is committed to bettering himself both on and off the field to become a regular fixture in first-grade.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to remain a Dragon,” Hunt said.

“I am keen to continue giving my all on and off the field as I strive to be a consistent fixture in the first grade team,” Hunt said.

“I’d also like to thank everyone who has supported me throughout my journey so far, including the Dragons who provided me the opportunity to move down last year and make my NRL debut.

“I’m looking forward to repaying everyone’s faith in me over the coming seasons and beyond.”

Dragons General Manager of Football Ben Haran praised the perseverance and resilience that Hunt has shown over the last eighteen months.

“Jaiyden has come a long way in a short time,” Haran said.

“His attitude at training and desire to be a consistent NRL player has afforded him this opportunity to re-sign.”

“Jaiyden has worked extremely hard and is a great example of a development player coming through the system. He has earned this right to the next phase of his rugby league career.”
