Born in Sydney, he grew up in Newtown and attended Blackwattle Bay School in Glebe, playing his first rugby with the Canterbury Juniors before joining Sydney University where he has been in first grade since 2013.

He started training with the Waratahs in 2015 and became a member of the Extended Playing Squad.

In 2017 he was named in the Waratahs Super Rugby squad and he made his Super Rugby debut against the Lions.

He was called into the Wallabies squad to replace the injured Nick Phipps for the 2017 June Internationals against Scotland, Fiji and Italy but failed to make his debut

In July 2017 Gordon signed a two-year extension with the Waratahs.

The lively halfback took his Super Rugby cap tally to 39 by the end of the 2018 season but is yet to make his debut despite being in and out of the test squad.

Gordon scored a hattrick for the NSW Eagles and earned a call up for the final two rounds of the 2018 Rugby Championship.
