Banham played for the South Sydney Rabbitohs in the NSWRL Premiership, scoring five tries between 1936 and 1937. He represented New South Wales City in 1937. In 1938 the Mount Albert Lions signed Banham as player-coach, with assistance from the Auckland Rugby League and New Zealand Rugby League. He was named for New Zealand in 1939 but did not play a test, due to the cancellation of the 1939 tour of Great Britain. He returned to Australia in September 1940 with the intention of joining the Australian forces. In 1941 played several games for the South Sydney Rabbitohs and scored three tries.
