Cook, schooled at Grey College and part of the SA Schools team in 2009, started out his career with the Cheetahs, where made he made one senior appearance before switching to the Bulls in 2012.

He has signed a one-year deal with the Bloemfontein outfit who are currently third in this year's Currie Cup standings.
