Stormers look for Blues Shutout (match preview)

Blues v Stormers, North Harbour Stadium (9am CAT)

We love the Blues. We always have. Ever since the days of King Carlos, Joe Rokocoko and Rudi Wulf, the Blues have been dazzling our eyes with inspired running rugga. They do not believe in form however, and it’s because of this that the Stormers have a real chance of pulling off another victory on Kiwi soil. The high-powered Blues offense will certainly test the Stormers‘ resolute D, and we can look forward to some explosive collisions. What a treat.Fixtures

Players to watch:

Steven Luatua and the entire Blues backline will look to light it up once again. Big Eben Etzebeth will add some much needed power from the bench and look for Juan de Jongh to carve up some nice lines in the mid field.

Prediction: Stormers by a bunch.
