If only he'd been discovered earlier, Christiaan would have had many more Wales appearances. South African born, he qualifies for Wales via the residency rule. Christiaan was shining in the Welsh system with Swansea Valley Miners, Bridgend Blue Bulls, Wales Dragonhearts and Wales Students and as such was selected for the full Wales side in the European Cup game against Serbia in 2009. He scored a hat-trick of tries and the rest is history. He eventually played League 1 for South Wales Scorpions and North Wales Crusaders before retiring and taking up Masters Rugby League.

Also played in the Danny Jones Memorial Match - Keighley Cougars v Wales on 25/10/2015. Click here for details on this game.
