Mike Delany is a New Zealander and Rugby Union player who plays for ASM Clermont Auvergne in the Top 14 League in France. Previously he has played for the Chiefs and Highlanders in Super Rugby, Bay of Plenty in the ITM Cup, and the New Zealand national side, the All Blacks. He has also played in Japan for the Panasonic Wild Knights in 2011, although was temporarily contracted to the Otago Highlanders during part of their 2012 season.

Career[edit]

Delany plays at first five-eighth but can also cover fullback. Prior to playing for the Chiefs, he played for the Highlanders and also for Bay of Plenty in the ITM Cup.[1] Delany was chosen as one of 4 new caps to the New Zealand team for their End of Year of tour of 2009, playing one match on the tour.[2] In 2011 he signed for the Panasonic Wild Knights. In 2012, due to injuries to both starting and back up five-eighths Colin Slade and Lima Sopoaga for the Highlanders, Delaney signed with his former team to fill the position till they returned. Whilst still under contract with the Panasonic Wild Knights, he played on loan at Clermont, but signed a two year deal with the French club in April 2013.
