He switched code a first time, playing Rugby Union for U.S. Colomiers as a junior (under 20) player. In 2001, Estebanez switched back to Rugby League, playing for Limoux XIII for three years before joining Toulouse XIII Olympique where, in 2005, he reached the semi-finals of the Challenge Cup. He earned 25 caps for the France national rugby league team.

In 2006, he switched to Rugby Union again, joining Rugby Club Gaillac which was just promoted to Pro D2. Since 2007, he plays in the Top 14 for CA Brive.
