Megiel Burger Odendaal is currently an inside centre for the Blue Bulls. His participation in high school rugby led him to being part of the Golden Lions teams for youth week tournaments.

In November 2017, the centre was voted as the senior player of the year after a standout season at the Blue Bulls' awards ceremony.

Odendaal played all 15 of the Bulls 2017 Super Rugby matches and took his cap tally to 33 and scored 3 tries.

In May 2018, he signed a new deal that will see him with the Bulls until at least 2020.
