He made his state team debut when he was 15 years old.
He participated in a training camp for the first time in October 2011. He had his first call up to the national team in October 2011 in a game against India at the Bunbury Hockey Stadium. He scored a goal in his debut in the 57th minute, a game Australia won 5–0.
In December 2011, he was named as one of fourteen players to be on the 2012 Summer Olympics Australian men's national Olympic development squad. While this squad is not in the top twenty-eight and separate from the Olympic training coach, the Australian coach Ric Charlesworth did not rule out selecting from only the training squad, with players from the Olympic development having a chance at possibly being called up to represent Australia at the Olympics. He trained with the team from 18 January to mid-March in Perth, Western Australia. He was named the best player of the 2019 FIH Pro League after Australia won the first edition of the FIH Pro League. In December 2019, he was nominated for the FIH Player of the Year Award.
