The 28-year-old lock has moved south of the border to join the sky blue for the 2018 Super Rugby season. With over 100 Super Rugby caps and over 82 International Test caps for the Wallabies, Simmons brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the NSW forward pack. Hailing from Theodore in rural Queensland, Simmons is a product of the Southport School on the Gold Coast. He played his Junior rugby for the Theodore Roosters and as a senior, represented the Sunny Bank Dragons.
The 2m tall second rower played for the Australian Schoolboys back in 2006, graduating to the Australian Under 20s (now Junior Wallabies) in 2008 to compete at the Junior World Championship that same year. It wasn’t long before he stepped onto the Super Rugby scene, earning his debut in 2009 for the Queensland Reds against the Bulls in South Africa. Another year later and Simmons found himself in the Wallabies side, earning his international debut against South Africa in Brisbane in 2010.
