Auckland born St. Mary’s junior who was a part of the Jersey Flegg premiership winning team in 2007 and was a member of the inaugural Under 20s Toyota Cup squad in 2008.

After a series of strong performances throughout the season, he received an unexpected call up to the NRL squad, making his NRL debut in the penultimate round, coming off the bench against the Warriors in Auckland. He would retain his spot in the 17, once again coming off the bench in the final round versus eventual premiers Manly.

Whilst he would be part of the NRL squad in 2009, he would not add to his appearances, but remained a regular in the NSW Cup, with his final appearance being for the Windsor Wolves in the 2010 NSW Cup grand final.

He would later go to both St. George Illawarra and Parramatta but would not return to the NRL at both clubs, before shifting to France in 2013 and returning to Australia in 2014, firstly for the Wyong Roos in the NSW Cup and then playing out his career for his junior club in the Penrith A Grade competition.
