Rice started his career in 1987 at St Kilda after being recruited from Salesian College / Longwood. Plagued by injuries, he underwent two knee reconstructions at St Kilda. He was delisted by St Kilda and chosen as pick 19 by Carlton in the 1994 Pre-Season Draft, injuring his knee in his first game at Carlton and again requiring a reconstruction.[1] Despite playing in the wing at St Kilda he found himself being pushed up forward. It was as a half forward that he helped Carlton to win the 1995 Grand Final, kicking one goal and getting 10 disposals. Later in his career he was used in defence and he retired in 2001.
