Chris joined Glasgow Warriors from Australian Super 14 team Western Force but returned to his former club after failing to settle in Scotland.

Born and raised in Sydney, Chris was educated at St Patrick's College, Strathfield, the same school as former Wallabies Michael Foley and John Ballesty. He represented the college's First XV and on graduating joined the Eastwood club in Sydney's grade competition.

In 2002 and 2003 Chris represented Australia in sevens. He has represented NSW at U/19 and U/21 levels.

In 2004 he joined the West Harbour club, renewing his association with coach Joe Barakat who was his coach at St Patrick's.

Chris played in all 13 games during the 2006 Super 14 season, one of only five Western Force players to do so.

A crisp ball distributor, Chris played played eight times for the Waratahs before joining the Force. A post-season shoulder reconstruction ruled Chris out of the APC squad.

Chris undertook an MBA (Executive) Program at the Australian Graduate School of Management, and has recently taken up jujitsu.

    Just travelled down from Glasgow to Bristol with Chris and seems a really nice guy. Wish him the very best for the season and will pass on his regards to his pal, Shaun Berne, here in Bath.

    Chris has so much potential, he just needs the right oppurtunities. Matt Henjak's stupidity could be the start of a meteoric rise for Chris; he is a cluey player with an eye for holes. My tip is that he will have played for Australia by the end of 09
