Troy Flavell might have become one of the game’s greats such was his immense talent and athleticism as either a lock or blindside flanker.

Injuries and ill-discipline hamstrung Flavell, but he was able to improve his performance enough to play in Japan in 2004 and then again in New Zealand in 2006. He briefly regained an All Black spot and captained the Blues in 2007-08. Other than seven games for the Chiefs in 1998, all of his 79 Super caps were with the Blues.
