Jose was born at Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo, but played his early rugby with Hunslet Warriors in the South Leeds area. He then came under the wing of a scholarship programme at Leeds Rhinos, before joining Sheffield Eagles at the age of 16 early in 2012.
After three years with the Eagles, Jose continued his development with Dewsbury Rams in their reserve side. Jose’s break into first grade rugby league came with Hunslet in 2016, with whom he spent two seasons before transferring to Keighley Cougars for the 2018 season.
Jose made a big impact at Cougar Park, and had come under the scrutiny of a number of clubs in the Championship before joining the Lions at the start of the 2019 campaign. Jose made 16 appearances during his Swinton debut season, and will be looking to cement his place in the Lions’ pack during 2020.
