Having spent his Super Rugby career with the Hurricanes, and having become a key player for them, Nonu will join the Blues for the 2012 season. He made his All Blacks debut against England in 2003. He now has over 55 caps to his name. He featured sporadically at the 2003 World Cup, but was not selected in 2007.
