Biography

Harry Hoopert will embark on his second season with the St.George Queensland Reds after making his Super Rugby debut in 2018 and went on to play five matches in 2018.

The Queensland Pathway product also made his National Rugby Championship (NRC) debut in 2018, starting at loose-head prop for Bond University Queensland Country in Round 1 against the Vikings in Canberra.

A hard grafting, mobile prop, Hoopert has spent time working closely with Reds coach Brad Thorn as part of the Queensland U20s program.

The 19-year-old grew up on a wheat farm outside of Dalby and still returns home to help with the annual harvest.

Fittingly, his first taste of the sport was for local club Dalby Wheatmen, before honing his skills at Darling Downs Rugby nursery Toowoomba Grammar School, alongside Reds teammate Hamish Stewart.
