|Rugby union career|
Born and raised in Auckland, Hodgman attended Mount Albert Grammar School in the city and was also a member of the Blues under-18 program during that time. After graduating high school, he moved south to Christchurch and after suffering a season ending shoulder injury in 2013, he debuted for Canterbury during the 2014 ITM Cup. He made 9 appearances during his first season at provincial level in what was a disappointing campaign overall for the Cantabrians. 2015 and 2016 were far more successful years which ended in Canterbury lifting the Premiership title and in 2016 adding the Ranfurly Shield to their list of honours.
Impressive domestic performances saw Hodgman named in the Crusaders wider training group for the 2015 Super Rugby season where injuries to several front rowers allowed him to make 5 appearances during the campaign, including 1 start. He was subsequently promoted to a full contract for 2016, but was only able to add 4 more caps to his career total.
