Chris's Stats


Born in Narooma, New South Wales Chris played his junior rugby with Narooma Devils, going on to tour New Zealand and  England with the Australian Institute of Sport representative side. His senior debut came in 2007 with St George Illawara against North Queensland at the age of 22. After one season and 16 appearances for the Dragons the versatile forward linked up with Newcastle Knights where he has since made 160 appearances and scored 27 tries, in addition to becoming a New South Wales Country representative in 2011. In 2015 Chris missed just four games for the Knights prior to joining the Vikings for 2016, where the hard working and consistent Forward made his 200th career appearance, while retaining the ambition of a winning Grand Final appearance. Away from rugby Chris enjoys surfing, while at the end of his playing career he intends putting his qualification as a Primary School teacher to good use.
