Faumuina, Braid and McCartney commit to the Blues

5:40 pm on 8 May 2012

The Blues have re-signed three players, Charlie Faumuina, Luke Braid and Tom McCartney on two-year deals that will keep them at the Super Rugby franchise until 2015.

Flanker Braid and prop Faumuina have been two of the better performers in the Blues horrendous run in 2011.

However hooker McCartney has been guilty of numerous bad throws into the line-out resulting in turnovers and his resigning signals a lack of depth at number two.

Skipper and All Black hooker Keven Mealamu is currently out injured.
