The pressure is on for incumbent Wallabies captain Michael Hooper this October. He and the rest of the national team square off against the All Blacks in the Bledisloe Cup Test on October 11, and the day before kick-off is the scheduled auction of his Fairlight house.

The 28-year-old flanker bought the four-bedroom house as a first-home buyer in 2016 for $2,065,000, and added a one-bedroom pad in Queens Park to his budding investment portfolio two years ago for $970,000.

Hooper and his wife Kate are expected to trade up locally on the northern beaches once it is sold. Michael Clarke, of Clarke & Humel, has a guide of $2.3 million to $2.53 million.
