Mealamu looks promising for return to Blues

The Blues coach Pat Lam says his team goes into each match with a clear game plan in mind but some of the players are just not sticking to it.

The Blues slumped to a 23-11 defeat to the Queensland Reds at Eden Park on Friday, which took them to their eighth Super Rugby loss in nine matches.

The Blues made some poor decisions in wet conditions and Lam says it's a symptom of where the team is at with the players desperate to make things happen.

Pat Lam says Tony Woodcock and Rudi Wulf are looking doubtful for Friday's game against the Hurricanes, but says captain Keven Mealamu is looking promising for a return from his calf injury.
