The Hurricanes welcome the Blues at Sky Stadium in Wellington in the Super Rugby Aotearoa on Saturday. The Blues have already downed the Hurricanes in Super Rugby Aotearoa and I'm backing them to win again.

Hurricanes Form & News


The Hurricanes will be indifferent about their start to Super Rugby Aotearoa. They have won two and lost two of their four matches to date.

In the opening two rounds of Super Rugby Aotearoa, the Hurricanes were beaten, first 30-20 away to the Blues and then 39-25 to the Crusaders.

The Canes have since picked up their game, beating the Chiefs 25-18 away and then the Highlanders 17-11 at home.

After two wins the Hurricanes will want some continuity in selection but they'll be hopeful of welcoming back hooker Dane Coles. He will undergo a fitness test later this week.

Blues Form & News


The Blues will be pleased with their start to Super Rugby Aotearoa, winning three of their four fixtures.

In their first match of the competition, the Blues downed the Hurricanes 30-20 at Eden Park. They went on to beat the Chiefs 24-12 away from home, before edging the Highlanders 27-24 at home.

In their last game, the Blues were beaten by the Crusaders away from home. The 26-15 scoreline is flattering for the Crusaders, as the Blues were excellent.

Eighth-man Hoskins Sotutu has been labeled a possible doubt. Other than him there are no further reported injuries. Beauden Barrett returns to his old home ground and will certainly want to make an impression.
