He made his Air New Zealand Cup debut as a replacement against Waikato at AMI Stadium. He made his first start against Taranaki a week later in the second Shield challenge of the season. He was also part of the crusaders wider training group for the 2010 Super 14 season. In the 2010 NPC season, with Richie McCaw being busy with the All Blacks, he had a chance to star in all of Canterbury's games. His versatility in being able to play blindside and openside has helped Canterbury to win the Ranfurly Shield. Following an early season injury to McCaw, Todd was selected to play for the Crusaders 2011 season. In 2013, Todd was selected to play on the bench against France in the third test for the All Blacks.
