Blues halfback Piri Weepu will join Chris Noakes on a flight back to Auckland on Monday evening after failing to recover from a rib injury he sustained against the Sharks.

Weepu was still very sore on Monday and Blues doctor Stephen Kara believed it was highly unlikely his injury would settle prior to the Super Rugby match against the Cheetahs this weekend so a decision had to be made.

Wayne Ngaluafe, who debuted for the Auckland Blues against France last month, will fly out early tomorrow morning as a replacement.
