Trent is a right arm fast bowler for the NSW SpeedBlitzBlues. Trent earned his chance with the Blues after stand out performances for the St George club in the Sydney Grade competition in 2008 and 2009.

In 2010, Trent made his first class debut for NSW against Queensland at the SCG in January, where he took a remarkable 8 for 92 in the first innings of the match. Trent finished the season with an impressive 35 wickets at an average of 17.57.

Trent was also named the winner of the prestigious Bill O‚ÄôReilly medal in April, 2010. His great form last season was rewarded with a 3-year contract with the NSW SpeedBlitz Blues. 

The 2010/11 season Trent established himself as a regular member of the Sheffield Shield team taking 45 wickets helping NSW make the final, unfortunately losing to Tasmania, and also playing several matches in the Ryobi Cup and KFC Big Bash.
