This 2020, a rugby union player, Reece Hodge had a tough-luck in leading the Wallabies squad to the victory lane. He hung down his head in despair after missing a third attempt at a penalty kick, which only salvaged a draw with Argentina. Last time, he missed two penalty goals against Pumas; however, he is known to make his mark by debuting with 12 games in a single season.
Is his kick a lackluster performance or there weren’t many players lining up to take his shot on the scoreboard? How much does he make? Let’s unveil Reece Hodge’s salary, net worth, girlfriend, and wiki-facts.
Makes bankable salary and net worth
He balances most of the position in a rugby union- flyhalf, wing, center, and fullback. At a very young age, Reece Hodge played for the North Harbour Rays in the National Rugby Championship. Also, he joined Manly Marlins and accompanied them throughout the 2015 Shute Shield Grand Final. Then, he signed a contract with Melbourne Rebels, debuted early, and became the mainstream of the club immediately in 2016. The same year, Wallabies listed Hodge in their list, replacing Toshiba Brave Lupus’ Mike Harris.
In both the Wallabies squad and Melbourne Rebels, Hodge established himself as a mainstay of the game during the 2017 and 2018 seasons. But in 2019, he had a late start because of a fractured ankle, which prevailed during his training session. Though he missed the opening game of Rebels, he ended up with 15 caps at the end of the season. Be that as it may, be, he was also listed in three games for the Wallabies’ 2019 The Rugby Championship squad.
Although he missed an attempt to penalty kick three times in a row, the same year, he hit a score with a 55-meter penalty goal in the 2020 Bledisloe Cup. Perhaps, it was already foreseen by Rebels that they offered him a new contract until the end of the 2023 season. Hence, he is made available to play the World Cup in France too. There is no doubt that the contract seals a paycheck of hefty salary per annum. Well, he makes a remunerative net worth as a whole.
In a relationship with girlfriend, Liz Watson
Hodge found her partner, Liz Watson irresistible; she is both an Aussie and sportsperson by heart. It’s been more than three years, the couple Hodge and Watson are still strong as a rock. Liz Watson is a professional netball player who plays for Diamonds Star.
She debuted in the year 2016 when Hodge played in the netball’s Constellation Cup alongside Wallaby teammate Israel Folau over New Zealand. Isn’t Hodge excellent in every sport he takes part in? Nonetheless, it’s Watson, who helped him to get along with netball in the competition.
“She (Watson) is always good for a bit of advice. She lets me know what I am doing wrong or right
It definitely helps with understanding each other’s life”
26 years old, Reece Hodge was born on 26 August 1994, in Sydney, New South Wales. He has a huge build with bulky arms, shoulders, and thighs over the height of six feet and three inches. In other words, he can make anyone small who stands close to him.
The macho player, Hodge has quite adorable quirks when he snaps a picture with his mother. Also, he doesn’t miss to wish ‘Mother’s day’ every time on social media.
