Leinster and Ireland

Playing club rugby for Clontarf as recently as the 2015/16 season, he made a break-through for Leinster at the start of the 2016/17, when selected to start in the home game against Zebre. A sensational break and a man of the match performance gained him the attention of the national squad selectors. In October 2016, he was selected on the touring squad to play against New Zealand at Soldier Field, Chicago, in the opening game of the November test series where Ireland won 40-29. He was brought on as a substitution in this game in the 59th minute earning his first Ireland cap.[2]
