The former All Black lock Tom Donnelly added plenty of experience to the Blues squad in 2014 in the absence of senior locks Ali Williams and Anthony Boric.

Donnelly made his Super Rugby debut for the Highlanders in 2004 and earned the first of his 15 All Blacks Test caps against Australia in 2009.

After eight years with the Highlanders, Donnelly joined the Crusaders in 2012 and headed overseas to join the Mitsubishi Club in Japan later that year, before returning for the Crusaders’ 2013 Investec Super Rugby campaign.

In 2014, Donnelly signed with French club Montpellier.
