Christian joined the Kaikorai Demons when he arrived in Dunedin for his study, but he dislocated his shoulder in the first game. In the next year, he made the Otago development team. In his 4th year of Study, he made the Otago A team, and had to balance both rugby and full time study.
Christian grew up in Auckland and moved to Dunedin to undertake a dentistry degree in 2016, and now he is a qualified dentist. Christian is super passionate about Pasifika health, which is what inspired him to get into health sciences.
