The All Blacks coach Steve Hansen says he's not concerned by the form of the Blues in Super Rugby, but he does feel for the franchise.
Since 2008, the three time champions have made the play-offs just once, in 2011.
This year they've won just two of their eight games and haven't beaten another New Zealand side since the opening round in 2016.
In an unusual step, the Blues CEO Michael Redman will speak to the media tonday.
Hansen says they're following the team closely.
"I don't think I'd use the word concern, you feel for them. They're one of our franchises obvioulsy but they're also from a part of New Zealand that has a large part of our population, so there's a lot of talent that comes from out of that region."
Hansen says the Blues won't be a quick fix.
"Everyone is working hard up there and we're trying to do our best to help them anyway we can and it's not an easy fix, it's something that's going to take some time and there'll be pain along the way but we are feeling for them, there is no doubt about that."
The Blues play the Jaguars in Auckland this weekend.
