He played for the Margate-based Gladiators Rugby Academy before he was called into the Border Bulldogs Under–19 squad that won the 2012 Under-19 Provincial Championship Division B and winning promotion to Division A, making six appearances and scoring three tries.
After spending time with Saracens during the off-season as part of an exchange programme in conjunction with the British High Commission, he returned to be included in the senior squad for the 2013 Vodacom Cup competition and made his senior debut against defending champions Western Province in Paarl.
In 2013, he was named in a South African Barbarians team to face Saracens in London.
At the start of 2016, Am was one of two Sharks players that joined the Kings' Super Rugby squad for a trial period as they prepared for the 2016 Super Rugby season.
South Africa 'A'
In 2016, Am was included in a South Africa 'A' squad that played a two-match series against a touring England Saxons team. He came on as a replacement in their first match in Bloemfontein, but ended on the losing side as the visitors ran out 32–24 winners. He was promoted to the starting line-up for the second match of the series, a 26–29 defeat to the Saxons in George.
