The 21-year-old, who will play for Wellington in the NPC, has been a member of the Hurricanes since 2016.

Apisai played for the New Zealand Schools in 2013 and advanced to the New Zealand Under-20 side which won the U20 World Cup in 2015 and was captain of the 2016 team. He was promoted to the Maori All Blacks at just 20 years of age for their 2016 northern tour, making his debut as a replacement for the tour captain Ash Dixon against Munster.

"Leni is a player with proven Super Rugby ability and has developed leadership qualities which make him a valuable acquisition for the Blues.

"He will add important depth as well as competition to the position with All Black James Parsons and Northland captain Matt Moulds as the hookers in the Blues squad for 2018," Blues high-performance manager, Tony Hanks said.
