Originally from the Brothers club in Rockhampton, Hoare made his Toyota Cup debut for the Cowboys against Cronulla in round 17 of the 2009 season.
He played seven games in that first year and then had a highly impressive 2010 campaign where he made his run-on debut as part of a 25-game season as the Cowboys made the playoffs.
Hoare played in the opening six matches of 2011 before sustaining a serious knee injury.
Highly rated by the club’s coaching staff, the front-rower continued his rugby league education by playing senior football for the Mackay Cutters in the Intrust Super Cup competition in 2012-13, including taking part in the club’s first grand final victory at the end of his second season, and representing the Queensland Residents in their annual clash against NSW Residents.
