Saturday night out at Eden Park coming up, and the chance for three in a row for the mighty Blues. Saw a bit of the Canes Stormers at the weekend; they looked pretty good in the first half. Going to take a bit for the Blues to get up.
How the Stormers win:
Smash the Blues physically, kick for corners, maul tries, capitalise on poor Blues kicks, win penalties from set pieces
How the Blues win:
give the ball some air, put it in the hands of Rieko and Melani, forwards go forward enough to give some quality ball to the backs.
Going to be good fun, I'm looking forward to it.
The rush defence of the Stormers was pretty effective too. If their midfield get decent ball they can be a real handful.
They are good at staying in a line, so even if they are a yard offside it is hard for the ref to pick up.
