Debuting for the Blues in 2009, Michael Hobbs rejoins the Blues for the 2012 season after a year with the Highlanders and an extended layoff due to major back surgery.

Hobbs debuted for Wellington in the 2008 Air NZ Cup after two years living in Brisbane, contracted to the Queensland Rugby Academy.

The 24-year-old is the son of ex-All Black captain and former NZRU Chairman Jock Hobbs. 

He has represented New Zealand at Secondary Schools and Under-19 level.
