The Blues have a chance to climb up to second spot in the New Zealand Super Rugby conference when they meet the ACT Brumbies at Eden Park tonight.
They sit third, but are just a point behind the Crusaders, who were beaten 28-19 by the overall leaders, the Chiefs, last night.
With plenty of tough games remaining in the schedule, including a road trip to South Africa, tonight's match is potentially season defining.
The coach, Sir John Kirwan, is looking for a big improvement from last week's loss to the Crusaders.
The Brumbies lead the Australian conference, but have lost their last two games.
