The Blues may have only won twice this season, but both Super Rugby wins have been at their normal home ground of Eden Park in Auckland. On Friday they make a welcome return to the venue, where they will face the Bulls from South Africa. While the Blues can not qualify for the post-season play-offs themselves, they could certainly put a big dent in the Bulls hopes, if they can register a third win of 2015 at Eden Park.

Having already suffered a list of disappointing results during the season, the Blues found themselves humbled last weekend when they travelled to Melbourne, and were beaten by the Rebels 42-22. Friday's opponents had a bye last weekend, which may have given them a week's extra preparation for their Austalasian tour, but their two rivals for top spot in the national Conference both won, allowing the Stormers to leapfrog over them to the summit of the Conference table, while the Lions closed the gap to just three points.

The Blues have lost all three previous fixtures against South African opposition this season, going down 16-27 to the Stormers and 24-25 to the Cheetahs while on tour, and then a home game in Albany went the way of the Lions 10-13.
