The highly-rated back-row forward joined the Exeter Chiefs from Gallagher Premiership rivals Gloucester, where he was a product of their academy set-up.
A former pupil at St Peter's High School in Gloucester, he joined the Cherry & Whites academy in the summer of 2017. Within months, he was making his first-team debut, coming on as a replacement for Ben Morgan in an Anglo-Welsh Cup game against Newcastle Falcons.
Later that year he made his Premiership debut - again as a replacement for Morgan - against the Chiefs on November 24.
First-team opportunities proved limited for Hinkley, who was continuing to impress many with his form in the England age groups, particularly the Under-20s who he produced a man of the match display for against France at Sandy Park.
In March 2020, it was confirmed Hinkley would be joining the Chiefs on a long-term deal.
