CareerEdit

Dargaville started out his rugby career playing colts level rugby for Warringah and later Sydney University.[1] He progressed to the Sydney Uni Shute Shield team in 2013 and was an instant hit scoring 24 tries in his first 2 seasons.[2] This devastating form alerted the newly formed Sydney Stars who signed him up for the first ever National Rugby Championship season in 2014 where he scored 3 tries in 8 appearances.[2] Several Super Rugby sides were known to be chasing his services ahead of the 2015 Super Rugby season, however he chose to head south to Canberra to join up with the Brumbies.[3]

International careerEdit

Dargaville was a member of the Australia Under-20 side which competed in the 2012 IRB Junior World Championship in South Africa.[4]
