he Hurricanes travelling to Auckland to play the Blues. Join The Roar from 5.35pm (AEST) for live scores and coverage from this Round 8 match. The Hurricanes, though still naming a strong line-up, are without regular Captain Dane Coles and have lost centre Matt Procter to injury with the in-form Vince Aso moving in a position to cover.
The Blues have a mountain to climb, already with four losses, another loss would make things significantly more difficult as they fall off the pace within the New Zealand conference. Their recent form against New Zealand sides has been much publicised in the last week, winning only one of the last 18, so they will not lack for motivation this evening against a Hurricanes side sitting second in the conference after the first seven rounds.
The sides bring contrasting form into this clash, with the Hurricanes coming off a win over a fast finishing Waratahs while the Blues went down to the Highlanders in a pulsating match, losing by six. At home tonight, the Blues present a formidable challenge to the favoured Hurricanes side. They have named possibly their strongest line-up to date, chock full of internationals – the most notable inclusion being Sonny Bill Williams.
