In March of this year, 2014, Hill was appointed to the National team position. He works primarily with the Wallabies but also all the Australian Rugby Union teams.

Hill was a goal-kicking fullback for Eastern Districts, more commonly known as Easts, in the Newcastle and Hunter Rugby Union. He went on to work with the Newcastle Knights, Wests Tigers, ACT Brumbies, and Tonga.

“In November of 2012 Damien joined the Brumbies coaching staff as kicking coach. Since that time he has produced outstanding results with both our general field kicking and our goal kicking. Damien has an excellent understanding of kicking technique, and unlike some kicking coaches, he treats all players individually.His biggest strength is his ability to instantly assess a player’s deficiency, and with simple instruction start to correct their style.Our 2 main goal kickers this year Christian Lealiifano, and Zack Holmes kicked at 80% and 75% respectively”Stephen Larkham ACT brumbies Head coach
