Called into the Blues as a replacement in 2006, Tololima-Auva'a quickly adjusted to the demands of Super 14 rugby, earning the respect of teammates and coaching staff alike. Now selected in the initial squad, the dynamic openside flanker will be looking for even more game time in 2007. He has represented New Zealand at Under-19's and 21 levels and was also a member of the Gold medal winning sevens team at the 2006 Commonwealth Games.
