Hailing from a farm in Panuara in Country NSW, Grace Hamilton started playing Rugby on a University exchange in the USA. Growing up around Rugby with her a proud Rugby family, Hamilton was always around the XVs game. A vocal and dominant forward, Hamilton is known for her fierce approach to the game on the field and friendly nature off it.
In 2019, Head Coach Dwayne Nestor named Hamilton as the Captain of Australia for the Japan Series, capping off a strong rise through the ranks of the Buildcorp Wallaroos.
Hamilton was selected in the Buildcorp Wallaroos squad to tour New Zealand which included a Test match at Eden Park as a double header with the Qantas Wallabies.
Hamilton was chosen to represent Australia at the International Women's Rugby Series in New Zealand and went on to be a star for Australia at the Women’s Rugby World Cup in Ireland, where Australian finished in sixth place.
After her form the previous year, it was no surprise Hamilton was a crucial player in the winning NSW Women’s Buildcorp Super W side in 2018. Her aggression and dominance on the field saw her again selected in the Buildcorp Wallaroo’s squad to take on New Zealand in the two Test Series.
Hamilton’s outstanding performance on the field in the NSW Women’s Buildcorp Super W Grand Final was crucial in the side defending its title against Queensland. Hamilton’s strong leadership skills during the season was rewarded when Hamilton was selected as Captain of the Wallaroos for the Japan Test series.
