|Rugby union career|
Lindsay attended Michaelhouse school in KwaZulu-Natal and played for their Under-18 side at the 2009 Craven Week tournament. In 2010, he moved to Cape Town to join Western Province. He made twelve appearances for the Western Province U19 side that won the 2010 Under-19 Provincial Championship competition, although Lindsay was an unused substitute in the final.
In 2012, he was included in the Western Province U21 squad for the 2012 Under-21 Provincial Championship, but failed to play for them. He did however play some club rugby for university side Maties in the Western Province Super League in 2012. He was named in their squad for the 2013 Varsity Cup, but once again failed to make any appearances.
At the end of 2013, he joined Port Elizabeth-based side the Eastern Province Kings on trial and joined the university side affiliated with the Kings, the NMMU Madibaz for the 2014 Varsity Cup. He started five of their matches to help them to the semi-final of the competition.
His performances in the 2014 Varsity Cup also earned him an inclusion in the Eastern Province Kings squad for the 2014 Vodacom Cup competition. He was named in their starting line-up for their match against the SWD Eagles in George, making his first class debut in a 23–21 loss. He retained his spot in the starting line-up for their next match against Boland Cavaliers, where he scored his first senior try.
In June 2014, he was selected in the starting line-up for the Eastern Province Kings side to face Wales during a tour match during a 2014 incoming tour. He played the entire match as the Kings suffered a 12–34 defeat.
In May 2019 he was included in a preliminary 23-men squad for the Germany national team. His name was suggested to the German coach Mike Ford by another fellow South African coaching the German Sevens team, Vuyo Zangqa.
