In an interview with Triple M, Webb revealed that the club had denied Hunt’s formal release request, which was submitted in writing on Sunday.
Despite the request, Webb stated that the club had no intention of granting Hunt’s release, and his frustrations stemmed from a desire for the team to be successful.
Webb admitted that there had been informal discussions about a potential release, but it wasn’t until recently that something was received in writing.
Former Dragons teammate James Graham questioned Webb about the specific reasons behind Hunt’s request, to which Webb explained that Hunt’s frustrations were primarily related to the team’s performance and lack of improvement.
However, Graham couldn’t see what had changed since Hunt signed his contract extension, to which Webb pointed out that the team’s results hadn’t been favorable since then.
The club’s decision not to grant the release was made official in a statement, with Webb emphasizing their commitment to working with Hunt to address his concerns and build a successful club together.
