Blues Named For Shark Attack

Blues’ Head Coach David Nucifora has made two changes to his starting 15 for Sunday’s match against the Sharks.

The Blues’ website writes, “The only changes this week are in our backline where Anthony Tuitavake comes back into the starting team for Rudi Wulf. The team is lucky to have such great choices in this position and the performance of Rudi last week made this week’s choices incredibly difficult,” Nucifora says.

“Anthony has been in great form and deserves his starting spot while Rudi will play a major part in the game countering the effect of the Sharks’ bench.”

Nucifora has selected Ben Atiga at fullback to replace Isa Nacewa.

“After Isa’s unfortunate injury we felt that Ben (right) deserved the opportunity after working hard through the off season and impressing with his displays off the bench in the initial three rounds.

“We’re lucky to have a player of his experience to step into Isa’s position. We also considered George Pisi and Ice (Isaia Toeava) to cover fullback but felt Ben deserved his chance to take this opportunity.

“We’re looking forward to this weeks game as we feel it will be the best indicator as to where we are. Kings Park is a great place to play and we don’t need the disappointments of last season to motivate us for Saturday.”

• Joe Rokocoko will play his 50th game for the Blues
• Bronson Murray should make his debut off the bench

Blues: 1 Tony Woodcock, 2 Keven Mealamu, 3 John Afoa, 4 Kurtis Haiu, 5 Troy Flavell ©, 6 Jerome Kaino, 7 Justin Collins, 8 Nick Williams, 9 Danny Lee, 10 Nick Evans, 11 Joe Rokocoko, 12 Benson Stanley, 13 Isaia Toeava, 14 Anthony Tuitavake, 15 Ben Atiga.
Replacements:16. Tom McCartney, 17. Bronson Murray, 18. Bryn Evans, 19. Onosa’i Tololima-Auva’a, 20. Taniela Moa, 21. Rudi Wulf, 22. George Pisi.

  • Can’t seem to find any news regarding Bismarck and AJ being injured… let’s hope it stays that way… if not… we’re in even more trouble…

    I’ve just got that feeling that if we get the bounce of the ball… and play out of skins… we might just be able to squeak this one… and that would be HUGE…

  • Hello Sharkies…

    Getting closer to Saturday and we’re still crossing fingers that Bis will pass the fitness test…although the odds are on him not making the lineup.

    On our day we can run rings around the Blues…the question is whether Saturday will be our day or not. Can’t wait…anyway…have to get my SB picks in…later…

    Yeah,! I’m goin’ down to shoot my old lady,
    you know I caught her messin’ ’round with another man.

    Hey all you happy people.

    Hey, he are a black man! :wink:

    Warren Brosnihan… He must have the same agent as the likes of Skipper Badenhorst, Gus Theron and Rudi Ke- never mind.

    How he gets a job he is so crap at is a wonder. In one of the games he drops this beauty “he has more tricks than a pavement”!!!

    I love that song Rob – one of my absolute favourites. Their is a very yearning, haunting sound in the guitar on that track.

    DP, Im glad I have your approval. Though, I would have thought an old-timer like you would rather be talking Shirley Bassey or Nina Somone instead? :twisted:
