Blues need to beat Force

11:39 am on 17 April 2010

The Blues have one more home game in rugby's Super 14 before they head for South Africa and if they're to have any chance of making the semi-finals they have to beat the Western Force in Auckland tonight.

The Force are out of the running but with the likes of flanker David Pocock and wing Cameron Shepherd back from injury, they're putting their slow start behind them.

The Blues are ninth on 20 points after the Chiefs also fell to the top-of-the-table South Africans the Stormers and the Hurricanes beat the Brumbies.
