Biography

Kiwi Test prop (originally from Christchurch) signed with Canberra after playing against Australia in the 1986 Trans Tasman series. Todd made his Test debut against Great Britain in 1985 after being named as a late replacement on the Kiwi tour of England. He proved to be a rock-solid force in four grand final appearances with the Raiders (1987 & 1989-91). Todd was not a flashy player (his five seasons at Canberra did not yield a point) but he got through a mountain of work. After suffering a broken arm in 1988 he spent the off-season with Wakefield Trinity. Todd played in all three Tests against Australia in 1989 and six Test matches in 1990. Further Tests against Papua New Guinea (1991), Great Britain (1992) and Australia (1993) took his career Test total to 28. A victim of Canberra's self-imposed salary cap, he linked with G’Coast in 1992 but despite leading from the front, could not inspire the Seagulls in his two seasons with the club. Todd retired at the end of 1993 when injury ruled him out of the Kiwis’ Tour of Great Britain and France. A NZ water polo representative, Todd later married former World Surfing Champion Wendy Botha.
