Michael Hooper

Openside Flanker


Stepping up as the NSW Waratahs Team Captain in 2016, Michael Hooper once again proved why he is renowned as one of the worlds most talented and consistent rugby players.

Hooper played in all 80 minutes of every single match for the NSW Waratahs in 2016 and in 2017 played in 15 games for the Club. He finished 2017 as the State’s leading forward and captained the Wallabies to a Bledisloe Cup win against the All Blacks in Brisbane.

Earlier in his Super Rugby career, he was recognised, together with teammate Israel Folau, as the joint winner of the 2014 Super Rugby Player of the Year in a season that saw him named in the run-on side for the Waratahs during their Super Rugby Championship title winning campaign.

A product of the Manly Marlins, Hooper made his Super Rugby debut for the Brumbies in 2010, replacing Wallabies legend George Smith.
