Kempsey junior who made his NRL debut for South Sydney in 2011. After 10 appearances across two seasons, he was released by the Rabbitohs and was signed by Penrith.

The nephew of former Penrith player Amos Roberts, the speedy winger / centre made his club debut for the Panthers, coming off the bench in their 19-0 shut out of the Dragons at Kogarah. He would later return to the NRL team, as a starting winger and making five more appearances in the 2013 season and crossing for six tries, including a hat trick against the Gold Coast Titans in Darwin.

However, he would be released by the Panthers only days before the start of the 2014 season due to off field misbehaviour.

He would soon after be signed by the Gold Coast Titans, and in 2016 would join the Brisbane Broncos. He made three appearances for New South Wales in the 2018 State of Origin series but in mid-2019 would return to South Sydney before making a move to the Wests Tigers in 2021. He retired at the end of the 2022 season.
