He played for Cornwall 55 times, captaing the county during the 1977-78 season.

Redruth was his club and he captained them during their centenary season in 1975.

An England trialist and bench replacement, he did captain England B on their tour to Romania in 1978.

He played for the South West Counties at Exeter in 1975 against the Wallabies, and was a Barbarian.
