Spencer ready for Blues duty

After more than 12 years away, Carlos Spencer has returned to the Blues for this weekend's Brisbane Tens in the hope of reconnecting with the club.

Kitted out in the Blues' fluoro orange training top, Carlos Spencer came across as one of the boys on Tuesday.

Except, he's really not.

"He's got all the gear on and I mistook him for one of my players today because he looks in good condition, he's testing well," coach Tana Umaga said, having watched him complete a "bronco" shuttle-run exercise the day before.

Legendary first-five Spencer — now aged 42 - guided the Aucklanders to their last Super Rugby triumph in 2003 before departing the franchise in 2005.

"Conditioning-wise and fitness-wise I'm fine, but it's taking that initial contact — which I never liked anyway," Spencer said with a grin.
