Blake has turned heads since his debut with the Blues in 2015 although his progress has been stalled by injury.

He is an aggressive, physical, fast and intelligent player who captained St Kentigern College to a third straight 1A win in 2013 and selected for the Blues Development XV and the Auckland provincial side the following year.

 

Blake made an early impression in the 2016 Super Rugby Championship before he was again sidelined, this time with a broken thumb.
