Lachie Munro was named in the Blues squad for the first time in 2011, although he had made appearances for the team in both 2009 and 2010.

A former New Zealand Sevens and Under-21 representative player, Munro was a gifted footballer with the ability to cover wing, fullback and first five-eighths.

He began his rugby career with Auckland in the NPC, but shifted north to join the Taniwha in 2008 where he thrived, becoming the leading points scorer in the 2010 ITM Cup.
