Flutey played his first game of rugby at the age of four back in native New Zealand. He qualifies for England on the grounds of residency. Flutey started his rugby at scrum half which is where he played most of his age grade rugby that included winning the 1999 U19 Rugby World Championship. He then switched to 10 for the New Zealand U21s but has subsequently settled in the number 12 jersey.

Flutey racks up a first for the Lions, as he will be the only player to have played against the Lions and then been selected for the Tourists. He played for the Wellington Hurricanes against the Lions on their tour to New Zealand in 2005. He has also represented the New Zealand Maori.

On his arrival in the UK in 2005 he played two seasons with London Irish and scored 272 points, including 15 tries, before joining London Wasps in 2007; where in his first season he saw them become Guinness Premiership champions. He also received recognition from his fellow players by being voted PRA Computacentre Players Player of the Year in 2008.

He made his debut for England in November 2008 against the Pacific Islands, he went on to start in the Australia, South Africa and New Zealand games. He scored his first points against Italy in the 2009 RBS 6 Nations Championship.
