Lachlan Lonergan

11th Nov 1999 1.80m/98kg Hooker

Following in the footsteps of his older brother, Ryan Lonergan, Lachlan has also gone onto represent the Junior Wallabies. The hooker is a product of the Brumbies Academy and earned promoted to the senior squad for the 2020 Super Rugby season after shining as a Schoolboy at various levels.

Lonergan, younger brother of scrumhalf Ryan, was a part of the ACT Schoolboys side that won the 2017 National Championships, breaking a 29-year drought and spent three years with the ACT Schoolboys and Brumbies Academy, he is a recipient of the Australian Schoolboys Bronze Boot award in 2017 and was named in the Junior Wallabies squad for the 2019 World Rugby U20s Championship.

Developing nicely as a modern hooker shows a real willingness to carry the ball in the loose, tackle everything that came his way, and pop up with the occasional try. Lonergan then made the step up to NRC level with the Canberra Vikings, showing he can cut it at senior level as well, another step on his collision course with Super Rugby.

At the age of 20, Lachlan made his Super Rugby debut against the Chiefs coming off the bench along with his brother as the Brumbies caused an upset beating the much favoured Warren Gatland coached Chiefs 14-26. He made a further two appearances before the season was called off.
