Injury blow for Blues
The Blues have suffered an injury setback ahead of their must-win clash with the Cheetahs, with Chris Noakes out injured.
Noakes suffered a bruised thigh during his side's defeat at the hands of the Sharks on Saturday and will take no further part in the Blues' tour of South Africa as a result. Baden Kerr, who came on as a replacement for Noakes over the weekend, is likely to wear the number ten jersey against the Cheetahs.
Keven Mealamu (calf) and Peter Saili (haematoma), are also carrying injuries but are expected to turn out the penultimate game of the round robin phase of Super Rugby.
The Blues need to beat the Cheetahs and the Chiefs in their final match if they are to grab a play-off berth.
