Early life[edit]

Cottrell was born in Brisbane, Australia and attended Brisbane Boys' College. His father, Nev Cottrell Jr, played representative rugby for Queensland in the late 1970s. His grandfather, Nev "Notchy" Cottrell, captained the Wallabies playing at hooker for two Tests against the British and Irish Lions in 1950.[1]

Career[edit]

In 2011, while playing for West Brisbane Bulldogs in Queensland Premier Rugby, Cottrell was recruited by Super Rugby franchise the Western Force. He made his debut in Week 1 of the 2012 Super Rugby season against the Brumbies in Canberra.[1]

Cottrell signed for the Melbourne Rebels for the 2018 Super Rugby season after failing to make the field for the Force during 2017 due to injury. After being tipped for an international debut by media during 2018, Cottrell was called into the Wallabies during the 2018 Rugby Championship as injury cover for Lukhan Tui.
