Pine Rivers (Brisbane) junior who was recruited by St. George Illawarra and made his NRL debut for the Dragons in their final premiership match in 2020.

In 2021, he was a mid-season signing for the Panthers, in a player swap with Billy Burns. Whilst he would be a member of the Panthers “bubble” that was based in Queensland during the later stages of the 2021 season , he would not add to his NRL appearances that year.

He was a member of the 2022 NRL squad, but would have to wait until the final premiership round versus North Queensland to make his second NRL appearance, coming off the bench. Whilst the Panthers lost 38-8, he provided one of the key talking points from that match with a covering tackle in the dying seconds.
