Ross Haylett-Petty is a bustling forward and by far the largest and strongest Haylett-Petty brother in the Rebels.

He was also selected as a member of the Australia U20 side which competed in the 2014 IRB Junior World Championship in New Zealand.

The following year he made his Super Rugby debut against the Stormers and enjoyed a breakout season for the Western Force in 2016 playing 13 matches and establishing himself a regular in the starting the team with 10 appearances in the second row alongside Adam Coleman.

The Cottesloe product and former Australian Under 20’s representatives' stellar season was recognised when he took out the Club’s Rising Star Award. 

Haylett-Petty's stellar form in the 2016 Super Rugby season and NRC flowed over into the 2017 Super Rugby season, as he appeared in all 15 of the Western Forces matches.

In November 2017, the Melbourne Rebels announced that the Haylett-Petty brothers signed a two-year deal with the Super Rugby side.

Haylett-Petty enjoyed a solid first year with his new side, playing in 12 matches, while averaging 41 minutes, highlighted by his second career Super Rugby try against the Sharks in Round 6.

2019 proved to be another consistent year for the forward, with Haylett-Petty playing 13 games. Haylett-Petty was used more as a lock, shifting away from his usual role as a blindside flanker.
