Eroni Clarke played probably his best rugby at provincial level for Auckland and at Super Rugby level for the Blues. Between 1991 and 2002, he played 150 games for the team, occasionally as captain. The hard running, hard tackling midfielder was unlucky to receive just 10 caps with the All Blacks, yet he remained loyal to the Blues and a strong influence on the team during its first five seasons. In 2001 he brought his Super caps to 50 as a late season draftee to the Highlanders.
