Isaia Toeava made a sensational entry into top class rugby as a teenager in 2005 to win a place on the All Blacks’ end of year tour. His versatility has been almost as great as that of Nacewa and he, too, has filled with equal facility for the Blues and Auckland a range of backline positions. 

Despite injuries, he continued to maintain his All Blacks and Blues spot. He retired from the Blues in 2012, five years after his debut and with 61 caps. Isaia then played for the Canon Eagles from 2012 to 2014 before moving to the Kubota Spears, both in Japan.
