Blues desperate for win in Auckland

6:50 am on 12 April 2012

The under fire Blues will attempt to spark their spluttering season into life tomorrow night when they host the Sharks at Eden Park.

The side is under immense pressure after winning just one of their six games and lie at the bottom of the overall standings.

Coach Pat Lam's family has even been the target of racial abuse and halfback Alby Mathewson concedes there's a dark cloud hanging over the side.

However he says the team has a large group of loyal supporters and the Blues are desperate to repay their faith.
