Rugby career

Rugby sevens

Clark began his professional rugby career in rugby sevens. He made his debut in the IRB Sevens Series in 2012 at the New Zealand leg of the competition.[3] In 2014, he appeared for Australia in all six matches played at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, scoring forty-six points in total (three tries, thirteen conversions), and finishing with a bronze medal.[4]

Clark was a member of the Australia squad during the 2013 Rugby World Cup Sevens. He was named as a member of the Australian team in the 2016 Summer Olympics.[5][6] He scored one try against Spain in the Pool Stage.[7][8]

Waratahs

In August 2016, Clark signed a two-year-deal with the New South Wales Waratahs, after playing most of his career in sevens rugby.[9][10] He made his Super Rugby debut in round 3 of the 2017 Super Rugby season, coming on as a substitute for inside centre Irae Simone in the 41st minute.[11] Clark's first try for the Waratahs in the Super Rugby came in round 9 of the season in an upset loss to the Southern Kings at home, 24-26.[12][13]

In November 2019, Clark re-signed with the Waratahs to remain with the club for another season.[14][15]
