Glenmore Park junior who captained the SG Ball team to their premiership win in 2016.

However, seeking further opportunities he left Penrith and signed with the Sydney Roosters, making his NRL debut in 2018. After stints at Brisbane and the Warriors, he returned to Penrith for the 2022 season.

With first choice halfback Nathan Cleary unavailable for the opening rounds of the 2022 season with injury, he made his club debut for the Panthers in the opening round versus Manly. He played in the first three matches at halfback, before making way for the returning Cleary in Round 4.

In the second half of the season, he would make seven more appearances for the Panthers, initially as a replacement for Cleary who was unavailable due to representative commitments, and then later when he was suspended for five weeks for a dangerous tackle. His final NRL appearance was in the final premiership round, and would be in the halves as the NSW Cup team as they would be crowned premiers. However, he would be named as the 18th man in both the NRL preliminary final as well as the grand final, but would have no playing time.

2022 would be his solitary season at Penrith, and will be a part of the inaugural Dolphins squad for the 2023 season.
