Biography

A Highlander stalwart, Chis King reached the impressive milestone of 100 Super Rugby caps when lining up against the Chiefs in 2013. King made his debut in 2003 for the Crusaders, however a shift to the south in 2005 saw him starting for the Highlanders on a regular basis where he has stayed loyal.

King will be looking to re-discover his consistent form after an injury forced him out of the latter half of the 2013 season and despite playing just 10 games, the Ashburton-born prop made 75 tackles, missing just five.
