Simmonds joined the National Senior Men’s Squad in mid-2018 following Mark Knowles’ retirement, leaving big shoes to fill. The promising defender was part of Australia’s 2016 Junior World Cup team, while he also was an integral member of the Victorian side which won back-to-back Australian Hockey League titles in 2016 and 2017.
Simmonds made his debut against Argentina at the 2018 Darwin International Hockey Open.
