New Zealand born forward who debuted for Newcastle in 2011. After recording a conviction for assault in 2014, he was sacked by the Knights and after a stint with the Wyong Roos in the NSW Cup he returned to the NRL in 2017 with the Sydney Roosters. At the completion of the 2019 season he joined the Panthers.

He made his club debut for the Panthers in the opening round of the 2019 season as a starting front rower and retained the spot in the second round before the competition shut down for COVID-19.

Upon the resumption of the competition in late May, he was used as a bench forward. A knee injury saw him miss three weeks around the mid point of the premiership rounds but returned to be a regular part of the 17 as the Panthers marched towards the minor premiership. His time at the Roosters provided big game experience amongst the young Panthers squad and was only one of three players who had had previous grand final experience when the Panthers had qualified for the premiership decider.

It would end up being his solitary season at the Panthers, signing on the Leeds Rhinos for the 2021 season and beyond during the off season, and is currently contracted to the end of the 2023 season.
