Originally born in Fiji, Rodan moved to Australia with his parents at the age of three and took up Australian Rules football when there were no rugby union clubs in the local area. He rose through the junior ranks and won the Morrish Medal in 2000 and 2001.
After being delisted by Richmond Rodan joined Port Adelaide and added another 111 games to his tally, including playing in Port's disastrous 2007 Grand Final against Geelong. He injured his knee again in late 2009 but was able to play by Round 6, 2010 due to radical ligament replacement surgery. He was forced to undergo another LARS procedure at the end of that year when the ligament frayed.
With Port set to delist Rodan at the end of 2012 Melbourne traded a late pick to bring him to the Demons without jeopardising their overall free agent compensation position. He started the season against his old side, but was soon out of the team and spent most of the season bouncing between the senior and Casey Demons sides.
