Blues coach wary of Chiefs

7:01 pm on 20 March 2009

There'll be some interesting matchups when the Blues play the Chiefs in Hamilton tomorrow night in round six of rugby's Super 14 -- especially in the back three.

The hosts have Mils Muilaina at fullback, another All Black Sitiveni Sivivatu on the left wing and the speedy Lelia Masaga on the right.

Masaga's marking Joe Rokocoko and the Blues will have another All Black, Isaia Toeava, at 15.

They're fourth with 16 points while the Chiefs are four back in eighth but the Blues coach Pat Lam says the hosts' slow start means nothing now.

Lam says the Chiefs always struggle early then come right and his side doesn't play as a team they'll be blown off the park.
