Butler made his first-team debut in August 2016 but came to the limelight in 2017, scoring twice in the televised Qualifiers clash away to Warrington Wolves.

Later in the year, he followed in the footsteps of his Grandfather Colin Dixon by making his international debut for Wales against Papua New Guinea in Port Moresby as well as earning a spot in the World Cup squad.

2018 has been a breakthrough year for Butler, establishing himself as a first-choice second rower and, in June, earning a new contract until the end of the 2019 season.
