Coleman earned his big break in senior rugby during the 2013 Super Rugby season when he was called up to the Waratahs squad for their match against the Force. The encounter took place during the 2013 British and Irish Lions tour to Australia and the Watatahs were ravaged by international call-ups. Nonetheless they were able to triumph 28-13 with Coleman debuting as a 70th-minute substitute for Will Skelton.
