When that comes for the aspiring Queensland Reds lock is difficult to predict as the club's second-row stocks include James Horwill, Rob Simmons and Adam Wallace-Harrison. The 21-year-old Enever has, however, dedicated the past three months to preparing himself so when his chance does arise, he will be in a position to clutch it with both of his sizeable hands.
The former Stingray and Sunshine Coast Grammar student got a taste of his dream last year when he made his Reds debut against the Hurricanes in a pre-season exhibition match at Stockland Sunshine Coast Stadium.Late last June he earned his first Super Rugby cap against the Melbourne Rebels after Digby Ioane had to withdraw from the squad on game day because of illness.
Coach Ewen McKenzie rewarded 200cm, 112kg Enever by naming him 23rd man for the final two games of the regular season before elevating him to the club's 30-man 2013 squad.For Enever, a member of the Reds Academy for the past two seasons, the elevation was all the encouragement he needed.
He has been in training with the Reds since late October - the first time he has completed a full pre-season.
Likely to receive a call-up in the side's two trial matches, Enever is particularly keen to run out in front of friends and family against the Chiefs at Stockland Sunshine Coast Stadium on February 8.
Outside of that, he is simply waiting in the wings for a chance to prove himself. "I'M JUST doing everything I can so I can have a crack at it," Enever said. "If that means I get the chance to play for the Reds, that's my ultimate goal and what I want. I'm doing everything I can at training to make the most of the opportunity."
One of the biggest challenges for a player like Enever, coming into an established squad full of superstars, is to feel comfortable in his own skin.The former Australian under-20s representative said it had taken time for him to settle in and find his niche, but he was beginning to feel like he belonged.
"Coming into a squad like that with a lot of big names and seeing them every day and training with them, you get to see what they like and don't like," he said. "Everyone has their good and bad days, but at the moment it's going really well and I think I'm starting to find my place."
