Houston has made himself known for his hard hits while also possessing a mighty hand-off. He moved to Bath in 2013 having spent two years in France, including a season with Colomiers in D2 where he made a quick impression on local supporters with his powerful running and deft hands.
A Super 15 winner with Queensland Reds in 2011, New Zealand-born Houston has previously represented Australia A, as well being selected as an 18-year-old to tour Europe with the Wallabies in 2005.
In May 2016 he announced he would return to the Reds and was immediately included in the Wallaby squad by Michael Cheika to face England in June. He won his one and only Test cap against Argentina October 2016.
Houston has scored 10 points in 48 Super Rugby appearances since his debut against the Highlanders in 2008.
In June 2017, he was released from his Reds contract for personal reasons having spent two seasons with the club.
Following his departure from the Reds, Houston re-joined Bordeaux Begles the club he represented in the 2011/12 Top14 season
