Former All Blacks No.10 Carlos Spencer to play Brisbane Tens”

Carlos Spencer, a Blues legend and one they haven't been able to replace at the franchise since he left in 2005, will return to the team to play in next year's Brisbane Global 10s tournament.

"The body's pretty good".

Carlos Spencer has shown he still possesses the magic touch which earned the nickname King Carlos, while playing for the Blues and All Blacks over the past two decades.

"It's going to be fantastic to put that Blues jersey back on again", Spencer said in a statement.

"I still have a lot of passion for the Blue jersey".

The three-time Super Rugby champion will join his former Blues side at the tournament as a wildcard selection after being chosen via online poll. "I'm looking forward to the challenge".

He turned to coaching and he will come out of retirement to appear in Brisbane as a "wildcard" player.

Andrew Walker, Radike Samo, with the hit of the tournament, Morgan Turinui and Lote Tuqiri were among the popular wildcards at this year's inaugural Tens while former Wallabies fullback Chris Latham will strive to play in 2018 after a hamstring injury ruled him out.

Spencer will Julian Savea, Kurtley Beale, Conrad Smith, Karmichael Hunt, Liam Messam and Colin Slade at the tournament, which includes all Australian and New Zealand Super Rugby clubs plus invitational teams Samoa, Fiji, Pau and Japan's Panasonic Wild Knights.
