Biography

Hooper has racked up accolades almost as fast as he has Test caps. He has been an Australian Captain, a Waratahs Super Rugby winning captain, a two time John Eales Medallist and a Matt Burke Cup holder four times in a row. The 25 year old reached the 50 Test mark in the World Cup semi-final against Argentina. In 2014 Hooper was named Australia's 82nd Test Captain and the youngest player to lead the Wallabies (age 22, 223 days) since Ken Catchpole in 1961.
