Player Bio

A promising young front rower, Andrew Ready has steadily progressed through the ranks of the Queensland Rugby pathway over the last three seasons.

The 24-year-old possesses a sound grasp of the set-piece and an aggressive attitude in the crucial contact areas of the game.

Andrew was named on the Reds’ bench twice in two seasons before finally making his debut in his third match-day squad in 2015 – narrowly beating his head coach and mentor Nick Stiles, who sat on the bench three times before making his debut back in 1993.


Depth at hooker saw him a tight tussle for the Reds Number 2 jersey between Wallabies stalwart Stephen Moore and youngster Alex Mafi. The trio shared duties throughout the season.
Earned spot as Reds starting hooker for the majority of the Super Rugby season. Represented Brisbane City in the NRC. Selected to play for the Wallaby XV against the French Barbarians in Bordeaux.
Following on from his impressive form as starting hooker for McInnes Wilson Lawyers Brisbane City in the inaugural Buildcorp National Rugby Championship the previous year, Ready made his Super Rugby debut off the bench against the Hurricanes during ANZAC Round commemorations at Suncorp Stadium. He played a further three games as reserve hooker in the 2015 season.

He carried these experiences with him into the second season of the NRC with Brisbane City and was one of the side’s better players as they went on to claim back-to-back titles.
Andrew was named in the Reds Wider Training Squad early in the season before being elevated to the Extended Player Squad. He was later unveiled at the 2014 Reds Gala Ball as a member of the 2015 Super Rugby squad.

He was named on the bench in the Reds’ Round 16 clash with the Highlanders at Suncorp Stadium, but did not get on the field.

Andrew started in all but one of Brisbane City’s games during their run to the NRC title.
One of the prominent figures in Easts Tigers colours during their 2013 premiership run.
