Flavell signs for Blues

15.10.05 1.00pm


Troy Flavell will be back in blue in the Super 14 next year after signing with the Auckland union.

Flavell was always due to head back from Japan to New Zealand early next year, and was understood to be keen on settling in the Auckland area.

Though he may also play in the new NPC premier division, it is likely to be only for a few appearances.

The signing indicates Flavell will be back in the test frame as he would not otherwise have had the Super 14 carpet rolled out for him.

His old province, North Harbour, is a non-Super 14 based Union.

macdonald is having a superb season. drop collins. even though i think flavell is a top class player, i wish he didnt come here. weve got too many good loosies/locks in auckland atm - especially when it comes into the super 14.


so hes going to auckland in the npc? cause counties would suit him better, and need him more.

Thats the best situation I can think of...

Maybe we can loan him out to some other Union during the NPC in return for a Flyhalf

na i think rippers right, with macdonald on the bench, since he can play lock, flanker and no.8, so he can cover anywhere. i dont think he (flavell) will be in the starting lineup yet, because rawlensons form has been outstanding, and he too will work his way in.

5)a. willaims
6)kaino
7)braid
8)n. willams


sub: macdonald, flavell/haiu

i cant say that haiu should be in the blues, because this is his first year of npc, and when youve got 5-6 other players who are also very good, but also alot more experiacned, it should be a dissadvantage for him
