Rugby union star Karmichael Hunt has faced court accused of possessing cocaine, but his lawyer says it's too early to say if he'll fight the charges.
The Queensland Reds and Wallabies player appeared briefly in Brisbane Magistrates Court on Monday charged with two counts of possessing dangerous drugs and a new charge - contravening a police direction.
Hunt was charged after officers allegedly found him in possession of cocaine and alprazolam - better known as Xanax - during a search in a car park in the inner-Brisbane suburb of Fortitude Valley on December 30.
It is his second drug-related case in three years and threatens to bring an abrupt end to his glittering three-code career.
His lawyer, Adam Magill, requested the matter be adjourned until February 19 to give him and his client time to review the police material.
Hunt offered no comment outside court but Mr Magill said it was "too early to tell" if he would fight the charges.
"We've only just received some of the material," he told reporters.
"We haven't even read it, it's literally just been handed to us in an envelope."
Hunt was immediately stood down from all team-related duties with the Reds when the December 30 incident came to light and has been training by himself ever since.
The new charge brought against the 31-year-old alleges he failed to provide identification to police at Fortitude Valley police station on January 6.
If convicted, it's expected Hunt's contract will be torn up.
He had only signed a fresh two-year deal with the Reds and Rugby Australia a month earlier.
The QRU and Rugby Australia have both been contacted for comment.
The new court date is four days before Queensland's first game of the new Super Rugby season, against the Melbourne Rebels at AAMI Park.
Hunt played seven seasons in the NRL with the Brisbane Broncos and four in the AFL with the Gold Coast Suns before switching to rugby union for the start of the 2015 campaign.
He got off to a rocky start with the Reds when charged with four counts of drug possession, which occurred just after finishing his Suns' contract.
Hunt was suspended for six weeks, fined $30,000, stripped of the Reds vice-captaincy and instructed to undergo counselling.
He admitted it as a "terrible mistake" but denied he had a drug problem.
The utility back seemed to have put the controversy behind him last year when he was one of Queensland's best players and made his Test debut for the Wallabies.
