Hugh Roach represented the Australian Schoolboys on 11 occasions between 2009 and 2010 and remains as one of the most capped schools rugby players in Australia. 

In 2011 he was selected in the Australian U20 squad, making three appearances against Fiji, Samoa and New Zealand.

He earned another four Australian U20 caps when he was selected to play in the 2012 Junior World Championships against Scotland, Argentina and France. 

He first joined Eastwood as a senior in 2013 where he quickly made a name for himself in the Shute Shield.

He was announced as Rookie of the Year during his opening season of the first grade competition, following in the footsteps of previous winners and Waratah teammates Bernard Foley, Jed Holloway and Greg Petersen.

His impressive form saw him picked up by the Force where he made his provincial debut against the British & Irish Lions in June 2013.

Roach signed with the Melbourne Rebels for the 2019 season.
