Luke Hume

At the age of 18, Hume began his professional rugby career in Australia. Between 2006 and 2009, he spent time with two rugby league teams, the North Queensland Cowboys and the Cronulla Sharks. He came to New York City in 2009 to join the surging amateur rugby league team, the New York Knights. He led them to a club championship in his first year with the squad.

Hume then moved to Old Blue RFC, and the United States National team began to take notice of the young Australian star. In 2012, he scored a try on debut for the Eagles against rivals Canada. He made his first appearance for the National 7s team in 2012 as well. Since that time, he has appeared 26 times for the 15s team, and has played in 9 competitions for the 7s program.

Hume’s play on the international scene had clubs from around the world taking notice. He earned a contract with Gloucester Rugby, of England’s Gallagher Premiership as well as RC Narbonne, of France’s Top 14. Hume then returned to New York City and has been a spark plug for Old Blue ever since.
