Alby Mathewson

28 Nov 2014
Alby Mathewson signed with Auckland in 2009 and made his Blues debut in 2010 after previously playing for the Hurricanes.

His move north reaped immediate awards as he was named the 2010 Super 14 Player of the Year and went on to be selected in the All Blacks end of year tour.

His eye for a gap and deceptive turn of pace makes him a real handful for opposition defences and he has a habit of making spectacular breaks when least expected.

The Former New Zealand Under-19 halfback made his All Blacks debut against Munster in Limerick in 2009 after joining the side as an injury replacement for Andy Ellis.
