Rugby career

Venter was born in Kimberley. He represented Griquas at the 2015 Under-18 Craven Week tournament, before moving to Bloemfontein to join the Free State Cheetahs. He played for their Under-19 side in the 2016 Under-19 Provincial Championship and their Under-21 side in the 2017 Under-21 Provincial Championship, and also played Varsity Cup rugby for UFS Shimlas.

He made his first class debut in 2017, coming on as a replacement for the Free State XV in their Rugby Challenge match against former side Griquas.[1] He made four appearances in that competition, and featured in all ten of their matches in the 2018 edition of the competition, as the team reached the semifinal of the competition before losing to Griquas.[2]

Venter was included in the Cheetahs squad for the 2018-19 Pro14 competition, and made his debut in their final match of the season against the Southern Kings. Venter came on as a replacement in the 73rd minute of the match, and scored his side's final try in a 61-25 victory.[3]
