Hilfenhaus or ‘Hilfy’ as he is known grew up in Ulverstone in the North West of Tasmania. The 28 year old, Hobart based, strongly built paceman is also an avid golfer with an impressive handicap of 8.
Hilfenhaus did not play a match for the Hurricanes last season due to injuries and will be looking to play a big role throughout this season for the third installment of the competition.
An introvert, Hilfenhaus surprised his friends and family when he appeared shirtless as Mr September in the Men for All Seasons calendar in 2009. Hilfenhaus has recently become a father with he and his wife Meri welcoming little William in October. If given the chance, would like to be Michael Schumacher for the day.
