North coast junior who made his NRL debut for Newcastle in 2005. After not being able to crack into the Knights NRL team in 2006 he sought greater opportunities by signing with the Panthers.

The front row forward made his club debut for Penrith in the opening round of the 2007 premiership season, coming off the bench in the loss to Cronulla at Toyota Stadium. His second appearance in Round 8 was his first run on appearance, and in total made 7 appearances in 2007, and crossing for a try in their win over the Cowboys at Dairy Farmers Stadium.

Primarily viewed as a ‘squad’ player, his appearances in 2008 were once again limited as he once again spent the majority of the season in the NSW Cup for the Windsor Wolves, making 8 appearances, mostly off the bench.

He was released at the end of the 2008 season due to salary cap restraints, playing for three seasons in France before returning to Australia and playing out his career in the Newcastle competition.
