Blues coach Pat Lam has announced his match 22 to face the Waratahs at Eden Park on Friday, with only two changes to the squad from their match against the Highlanders last weekend.

Alby Mathewson returns to the starting line up after his injury and replaces Chris Smylie, who drops to the bench.

Daniel Braid also returns to the squad, and will sit on the bench, returning to Super Rugby for the first time since injuring himself early in the season.

Should the Blues lose, it will be the last time we see the likes of Jared Payne, Joe Rokocoko and Luke McAlister run out for the team as they have all signed to play elsewhere from next season.

Blues:15 Jared Payne, 14 Joe Rokocoko, 13 Benson Stanley, 12 Luke McAlister, 11 Lachie Munro, 10 Stephen Brett, 9 Alby Mathewson, 8 Peter Saili, 7 Luke Braid, 6 Jerome Kaino, 5 Ali Williams, 4 Anthony Boric, 3 John Afoa, 2 Keven Mealamu (c), 1 Charlie Faumuina.

Replacements: 16 Tom McCartney, 17 Tevita Mailau, 18 Chris Lowrey, 19 Daniel Braid, 20 Chris Smylie, 21 Winston Stanley, 22 Sherwin Stowers
