Biography:

'Blairy' goes into his second campaign with the Vodafone Warriors in sight of becoming just the third New Zealand player to join the NRL's 300-game club behind Ruben Wiki (312) and the just-retired Simon Mannering (301).

Sitting on 289 appearances, Adam is on an impressive list of Kiwi captains who have played for the club. Others have been Dean Bell, Stephen Kearney, Duane Mann, Matthew Ridge, Quentin Pongia, Stacey Jones and Ruben Wiki as well as his long-time New Zealand team-mate Mannering.

'Blairy' joined the Vodafone Warriors in 2018 after three consecutive finals campaign with the Broncos following his move to the Brisbane club in 2015. He immediately boosted that to four straight post-season stints after helping the Vodafone Warriors to their first taste of final football since 2011.

He was in Melbourne’s grand final-winning team in 2009, played in the Storm’s beaten grand final sides in 2006 and 2008 and then for the Broncos when they lost the 2015 decider to North Queensland in extra time.

The Whangarei-born Blair has been one of the NRL’s most durable players.
He played all 27 games for the Broncos in 2017 and has averaged 24 games a season in his last 11 campaigns, missing just 17 of a possible 282 games.

He has been ever-present in the Kiwis’ title successes during his Test career, which now numbers 48 appearances following New Zealand's 2018 end-of-season internationals against the Kangaroos and England.

He started at prop in the landmark Rugby League World Cup victory over Australia in 2008 and in the Four Nations successes against the Kangaroos in 2010 and 2014. He also played in the 2006 Tri-Nations final and was involved in the Kiwis’ Four Nations campaigns in 2009, 2011 and 2016; the only major tournament he has missed has been the 2013 Rugby League World Cup.
