He played for the Canterbury Cardinals in the new Lion Red Cup in 1994.
During this time he studied at the University of Canterbury, gaining a Bachelor of Science degree.
Endacott moved to England in 1995, leaving the day after his final university exam, and joined Hull. His performances were impressive enough that the then Auckland Warriors signed him for the 1996 season. Before taking up his contract he played for the Christchurch City Shiners several times in the 1995 Lion Red Cup competition.
Endacott spent 1996 playing for the Warriors reserve grade team, which at the time was coached by his father, Frank. He was the reserve team's second highest tackler. He also was selected for a New Zealand XIII team that played the touring Great Britain side. In 1997 he finally made his first grade debut for the Warriors, under coach John Monie. Mid-way through the season Monie was fired and his father, Frank, was promoted to coach the first grade side. Endacott continued to play for the Warriors, making 42 appearances until his retirement in 1999.
After retirement Endacott remained in Auckland and became involved in the As Seen on TV business.
Endacott was assistant coach for the Celebration Lions Premiers in 2009, who won the Roller Doors Pre-season tournament and the Gore Cup.
In 2011 he accepted the role of head coach of the Halswell Hornets for 2011 and 2012 taking several key players from Celebration with him. He coached Canterbury A in the 2011 South Island competition. In 2012 he was promoted to coaching Canterbury following the retirement of Brent Stuart.
