Biography

Following a standout maiden year with Queensland, Bryce Hegarty will again look to play a starring role for the Reds in 2020.

Born and raised in Queensland, Bryce Hegarty returned to the right side of the border in 2019 following three seasons at both the Rebels and Waratahs.
 
Hegarty made his Queensland debut in the Reds opening game of 2019 against the Highlanders in Dunedin and finished the year with 15 caps, as well as 156 points (7T, 32C, 19P) as the Reds highest-point scorer, but also as Super Rugby’s overall second-highest point scorer for 2019.
 
Hegarty’s Rugby career began at high school where he proved a standout player at Marist College Ashgrove in Brisbane’s inner-west.

Following school, Bryce was signed by the Brisbane Broncos U20s side in 2011 before he made the switch back to the 15-man code two years later with the Melbourne Rebels.

He made his Super Rugby debut in May 2013 as the Rebels’ youngest squad member, before he briefly returned home to Brisbane at the backend of the season and played Queensland Premier Rugby with GPS, who finished runners-up to Easts in the Grand Final that year.
 
Hegarty left the Rebels at the end of the 2015 season and signed a deal to play in Japan’s Top League with Toyota Shokki Shuttles.

He arrived back in Australia the following year to take up a new Super Rugby contract with the Waratahs and went on to play 30 matches and score five tries for New South Wales.
