Coaching Bio

Current professional rugby player looking to help aspiring players fulfil their potential in the game of Rugby Union. I started playing rugby when I was four years old and was fortunate enough to fulfil my childhood dream of playing for my country (Wallabies 12 tests) and state (Queensland 82 caps).

I was also able to represent the Melbourne Rebels (53 caps) and experience playing overseas in the United Kingdom with Gloucester in the English Premiership and European Heineken Cup (32 caps). I had some incredible coaches and mentors along the way who helped me on my journey and now I am looking to pass on my knowledge and experience to the next generation of aspiring rugby players in the country. Will be looking to help driven players ready to take their game to the next level. Position: Hooker Wallabies 12 tests 135 Super rugby Caps - QLD Reds and Melbourne Rebels 2011 Super rugby champion 2011 QLD Reds 3 time QLD premier rugby champion (2011, 2012, 2021)
