Sam Prattley is one of the Blues quiet achievers, unafraid to put in plenty of hard training to develop his skills.

The Blenheim-born prop attended Nelson College, playing for the NZ U20 side in 2010, the same year as his debut for the Tasman Makos where he played 29 times.

He shifted north in 2013 to pursue his Super Rugby dream with the Blues after stints with the Crusaders and Highlanders Wider Training Groups. He has since earned 33 caps for the Blues and 34 for Auckland, and in 2016 was awarded club person of the year, playing 11 times mostly as a starter, and scoring one try. Sam is well respected for his contribution around the club on all fronts.
