Christopher is one of the greatest hopes for French rugby at his position. Two years ago, when he was still a Junior, he could make his first steps in the professional team. And what first steps! Tough in the scrum, he also has a force of penetration and is at ease in the rucks. Thanks to those qualities and to a lot of injuries at his position, he was part of the group that played the final phases 2012. He even came into play in the semi-final against Castres, in June 2012.
If 2012-2013 was more delicate, let's not forget that Christopher is still very young for a hooker. Nowadays, with a lot of work being done, Christopher is showing another face as a player and he ofeten used as a first choice hooker among the Toulouse team.
Christopher Tolofua is used to play as a hoker, but he recently increased his area of expertise by also playing at a number-eight.
Christopher played his first match with the professional team the January 28th 2012, against the Racing Métro, in Top 14. He was only 18 !
Before, the 2013-2014 season, Christopher had had 2 selections with the XV of France. Indeed, he was part of the squad for the 2012 Test-Matches in Argentina.
