Early career

A Queenslander by birth, Hyne was raised in Rockhampton, but attended school at Downlands College in Toowoomba. His first exposure to senior rugby was with Brothers Old Boys in the Queensland Premier Rugby competition in 2012. During his time with Brothers, he combined rugby with work as a carpenter.[1]

His breakthrough came in 2015 when he was selected for the Brisbane City side which competed in and won that year's National Rugby Championship. In total, he played in 9 of City's 11 games during the campaign and helped himself to 2 tries.[2][3]

Super Rugby career

His strong performances as a lock for Brisbane City did not go unnoticed and he was invited to Brumbies pre-season training ahead of the 2016 Super Rugby season. There he impressed head-coach Stephen Larkham who signed him on a development contract. Hyne made his debut as a number eight in a match against the Reds, however it didn't prove to be a happy beginning to his Super Rugby career with an injury forcing him to leave the field after only 5 minutes. He was ruled out for the remainder of the season, but he had done enough to be signed to the Brumbies Extended Playing Squad for the 2017 season.[1]
