Ali Williams will earn his 100th Super Rugby match for the Blues when he leads his team onto Growthpoint Kings Park this Saturday.

Two of their All Black stars will play off the bench, Keven Mealamu and Rene Ranger set to make their impact felt off the wood.

George Moala and Chris Noakes are back at wing and flyhalf respectively, while Jackson Willison will take a lead role in the midfield battle.

The Blues are still in with a shot of qualifying for the play-offs and will be treating this match like a test match.

Blues: 15 Charles Piutau, 14 Frank Halai, 13 Jackson Willison, 12 Francis Saili, 11 George Moala, 10 Chris Noakes, 9 Piri Weepu, 8 Peter Saili, 7 Luke Braid, 6 Steven Luatua, 5 Ali Williams (c), 4 Anthony Boric, 3 Angus Ta’avao, 2 James Parsons, 1 Tim Perry.

Substitutes: 16 Keven Mealamu, 17 Ofa Tu’ungafasi, 18 Kane Barrett / Culum Retallick, 19 Brendon O’Connor, 20 Jamison Gibson-Park, 21 Baden Kerr, 22 Rene Ranger.


  • Was just about to speculate that the Blues are waiting for the Shark’s team announcement and vice versa. 😈

  • Why did I pick the Sharks on Superbru again?

    I just did it, without a thought. 😐

    I hope we can pull it through, but this is a very good Blues side and we have so many things going on at the Sharks. I’m really just hoping for a better rugby match produced from our boys.
