Ofisa Tonu’u was top value as a strongly built halfback in the first three seasons of the Super 12, before departing the Blues (34 matches) in the draft to the Hurricanes in 1999. His biggest legacy to Auckland may have been in 1995 when with the game moving to professionalism he led many of the union’s best players, including Spencer and Clarke, in signing with the NZRU.
