Burton was born and raised in Perth, Western Australia and represented his state at various age-group levels during his school days. He gained his big break ahead of the 2014 Super Rugby season when he was named as a member of the Force's 5 man extended playing squad. He didn't feature during the first half of the season, but received his first Super Rugby cap on the franchise's 2 match tour of South Africa in May. An injury to first choice Inside Centre Kyle Godwin saw him named as the starting number 12 against the Stormers in Cape Town. His debut was not a happy one with the Force going down 8-24 to the South African side.
