Jeremy Hawkins (born 15 May 1993) is a New Zealand professional rugby league footballer who currently plays for the Melbourne Storm in the National Rugby League. He plays at centre and wing and previously played for the Canberra Raiders.

Background

Born in Wellington, New Zealand, Hawkins played rugby union until he was 14-years-old.[2] He then made the switch to rugby league with the Randwick Kingfishers, before being signed by the Canberra Raiders.

Playing career

Early career

From 2011 to 2013, Hawkins played for the Canberra Raiders' NYC team.[3][4] On 30 August 2013, he re-signed with the Raiders on a 2-year contract.[5] On 13 October 2013, he vice-captained the Junior Kiwis against the Junior Kangaroos, after being 18th man the year before.[6][7][8][9]

2014

In 2014, Hawkins graduated to the Raiders' New South Wales Cup team, Mount Pritchard Mounties.[10] In Round 18 of the 2014 NRL season, he was named to make his NRL debut against the Gold Coast Titans, however the Raiders' request to play him was denied by the NRL due to the Raiders having used up all their second-tier salary cap and having players in Hawkin's position available to play.[11][12] In Round 24, he made his NRL debut for the Raiders against the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks, playing at centre in the Raiders' 22-12 win at Remondis Stadium.[13][14]

2015

On 13 February, Hawkins re-signed with the Raiders on a 2-year contract,[15] however, on 5 November, he was released from the final 2 years of his contract and signed a 2-year contract with the Melbourne Storm starting in 2016.[16][17]
