The baby-watch is over for Blues players Joe Rokococo, Jerome Kaino and Taniela Moa with their respective partners all giving birth this week.

Kaino and Rokococo missed the Blues first match against the Western Force but along with Moa will rejoin the squad in South Africa later this week.

The trio won't play against the Bulls on Sunday but will be available for the Blues third round match against the Stormers in Cape Town.

Meanwhile management hope captain Keven Mealamu will recover from the hamstring injury he suffered against the Force in time for the Bulls clash.
