Patrick O'Hanlon is a former Australian professional rugby league player who played for the Canterbury Bulldogs and Parramatta Eels in the National Rugby League.

National Youth Competition[edit]

A Mackay Brothers junior, O'Hanlon was signed by Parramatta after being selected for Queensland U/18's & Australian schoolboys. Dominating in 2010 and 2011, O'Hanlon in 2010 was named on the bench to play first grade against the New Zealand Warriors in round 17, but did not play.

NRL career[edit]

He made his NRL debut in round 17, 2011 against the Brisbane Broncos, coming off the bench to play centre for the injured Jacob Loko. O'Hanlon scored his first try in round 3, 2012 against the North Queensland Cowboys.[2]

He signed with the Bulldogs for the 2014 season.

Injury and retirement[edit]

In the first week of the 2014 NRL finals series, O'Hanlon suffered a compound left leg fracture. After playing a handful of games in the NSW Cup in 2015 O'Hanlon struggled to gain enough strength to play with confidence.[3]

In June 2016 it was revealed that O'Hanlon had decided to retire from the game completely. [3][4]
