PROFILE: Blair was named 2005 Hockey New Zealand Player of the Year, in recognition of his skills as a world class defender.  Blair (North Harbour), is respected nationally and internationally for his athleticism, consistency and ability to turn defence into attack. Despite only recently entering his mid 20s, Hopping has already played well over 100 games for New Zealand since debuting in 2000 against Pakistan. He has established himself as an integral member of the New Zealand team.  He plays most commonly at left half, but has played in the centre midfield role this year, rotating with Ryan Archibald, as best suits the needs of the team.
