The powerful, explosive prop played for the Blues between 2004 and 2011, earning 101 caps in the process. Afoa was renowned for his versatility, working on his throwing to be able to cover hooker when needed.  

Afoa played every minute of the Blues’ 2006 Rebel Sport Super 14 season, the only forward to do so. He left New Zealand to play for Ulster in 2011 then moved across to Gloucester Rugby in 2014.
