Blues name team for Brumbies

The Blues have named their team to face the Brumbies on Saturday. Isaia Toeava and Sam Tuitupou did not get the all clear from medical staff after taking fitness tests, so are not named in the 22.


Troy Flavell retains the captaincy after being carded last week. Nacewa also retains the Flyhalf berth while McAlister starts at Inside centre.


David Holwell warms up the bench and may come on later in the match. Ben Atiga is also named on the bench.
