Mils Muliaina

The Samoan-born fullback started his Super Rugby career with the Blues in 2001, helping the side earn the Super Rugby trophy in 2003 and tallying up 49 caps. He then moved south to play for the Chiefs in 2006.  Mils Muliaina, as most people call him, is recognised for earning a century of All Black caps between 2003 […]

Isa Nacewa

Isa Nacewa was at home in any position from first five-eighths to fullback and was a useful goal kicker as well during his 44 games for the Blues from 2005-08. He was another in a long line of legendary Fijian wingers like Joeli Vidiri, Rupeni Caucaunibuca and Joe Rokocoko who have thrived as potent attacking weapons for the Blues.  He would certainly have been an […]

Meet the Blues at the 2017 Royal Easter Show

Fresh off the back of signing autographs and posing for dozens of selfies after our match against the Western Force last weekend, we’re giving Blues fans another opportunity to meet some of your favourite players. That’s right. The annual Royal Easter Show is coming to town and we’re going to be there from Friday 14 […]

Joe Rokocoko

Joe Rokocoko was a player whose attacking qualities are without question.   He had a disappointing season by his own high standards in 2009 and missed out on the All Blacks’ end of season tour to Europe.  But he showed remarkable determination to hit back in 2010, upping his workrate to become the top try scorer for the Blues and reestablishing himself […]

Xavier Rush

Xavier Rush was another stalwart Auckland representative who became an All Black and yet gave some of his best playing deeds to Auckland and the Blues. At first a No 8 understudy to Zinzan Brooke and Michael Jones, Rush established himself with the Blues in 1998. For both province (74 games) and club (86 games) he was a splendid leader, winning the Ranfurly Shield, the NPC […]

Force reckoned with at Eden Park

The embattled Western Force were a force to be reckoned with at Eden Park tonight, eventually going down 24-15 thanks to some excellent Blues tries at crucial times. The Aussies, no doubt motivated by speculation that they may be dropped from the Investec Super Rugby competition under the suggested new format, dominated possession early. In […]

Carlos Spencer

Carlos Spencer was unchallenged as the Blues’ most enthralling entertainer with his skill at first five-eighth. He became universally known as “King Carlos” and will be remembered for the outrageous way he taunted Crusaders’ fans – in 2004 at Christchurch he deliberately ran to the corner rather than the posts to score, but still landed the conversion from the sideline to deny […]

Strong A-team named to face Canes

Northland lock Josh Goodhue will captain a strong Blues A side in this weekend’s KFC curtain raiser against the Hurricanes development team. The side features Rene Ranger at centre, Kara Pryor at openside, and four players who have been named in the New Zealand U20 squad to travel to the Gold Coast next month for […]
