Blues continue to make changes

Blues coach Pat Lam has made a few changes to his team to face the Sharks this Friday, after a week of allegations, speculation and just plain blame being seen in the media. Pat Lam still has his job though, and the players have openly backed him, and they are going to come out to face the Sharks guns blazing.

The Braid brothers are both fit and will both start against the Sharks after Daniel was forced to withdraw from the team last week, and Luke able to start again after his suspension. There are two debutants in the team, lock Liaki Moli joins Filo Paulo in the second row, a far cry from the Ali Williams and Anthony Boric combination we are used to seeing.

The second new starter is winger Hadleigh Parkes, who is on the wing in place of an injured David Raikuna, but joins a back three of Rene Ranger and Rudi Wulf, who has all the experience and pace in the book.

The unfit Piri Weepu will again sit on the bench while Alby Mathewson and Gareth Anscombe continue in the halfbacks. The midfield battle of Nonu and Stanley against Whitehead and Pietersen should make for interesting viewing.

Blues: 1. Tony Woodcock 2. Keven Mealamu (C) 3. Charlie Faumuina 4. Liaki Moli 5. Filo Paulo 6. Luke Braid 7. Dan Braid 8. Chris Lowrey 9. Alby Mathewson 10. Gareth Anscombe 11. Rene Ranger 12. Ma’a Nonu 13. Benson Stanley 14. Hadleigh Parkes 15. Rudi Wulf

Reserves: 16. Tom McCartney 17. Tevita Mailau 18. Ali Williams 19. Peter Saili 20. Piri Weepu 21. Michael Hobbs 22. George Moala
