Career[edit]

Youth[edit]

He started his career at the Leopards, representing them at Under–19 level in 2006 and at Under–21 level in 2008.

Leopards[edit]

He made his first class debut in the 2007 Currie Cup First Division match against the Mighty Elephants[2] and started the match against the Border Bulldogs two weeks later.[3]

He made no first class appearances in 2008, but returned as a fly-half for their 2009 Currie Cup Premier Division season, scoring 71 points over the course of the season. In addition, he played in both promotion/relegation matches against the SWD Eagles,[4][5] scoring 19 points over the two matches to help the Leopards maintain their Premier Division status. A further twelve appearances followed in 2010, but he only made two substitute appearances in the 2011 Vodacom Cup.

SWD Eagles[edit]

He then switched to George-based side the SWD Eagles and made a handful appearances for them in the 2011 Currie Cup First Division and 2012 Vodacom Cup competitions.

Border Bulldogs[edit]

In 2013, he joined the Border Bulldogs for the 2013 Currie Cup First Division and 2013 Vodacom Cup competitions.

Falcons[edit]

However, he remained at the Bulldogs for just one season, joining the Falcons in 2014.[6]

Other[edit]

In addition to his first class career, he also represented Potchefstroom-based university side NWU Pukke in the 2009, 2010 and 2011 Varsity Cup competitions and he played for Despatch in the inaugural SARU Community Cup competition in 2013.
