Christopher is one of the greatest hopes for French rugby at his position. Two years ago, when he was still a Junior, he made his first steps in the professional team. And what first steps! Tough in the scrum, he has a force of penetration and is at ease in the rucks. Thanks to those qualities and to some other player's injuries at his position, he was part of the group that played the playoffs 2012. He even entered the field in the semi-final against Castres, in June 2012.
If 2012-2013 was a more delicate year for him, let's not forget that Christopher is still very young for a hooker. Nowadays, with a lot of work achieved, Christopher is showing another face as a player and he is often used as a first choice hooker among the Toulouse team.
Christopher Tolofua is used to play as a hooker, but he recently increased his area of expertise by playing at a n°8.
Christopher played his first match with the professional team January 28th 2012, against Racing Métro, in Top 14. He was only 18.
Before, the 2013/14 season, Christopher has had 2 selections with the XV de France. Indeed, he was part of the squad for the 2012 Test-Matches in Argentina.
