The Blues will field the dynamic midfield combination of Isaia Toeava and Anthony Tuitavake against the in-form Sharks on Sunday. Tuitavake will start at centre in the only change to the starting line-up that convincingly dispatched the Western Force in Perth last week.


Derren Witcombe will once again start at hooker, with Keven Mealamu off the bench, in a repeat of last week’s tactical move by David Nucifora.


Accomplished goalkicker and tactician David Holwell has been added to the reserves, and Angus Macdonald is preferred to Anthony Boric as cover for lock and flanker.


Rudi Wulf’s outstanding form in the 2007 Rebel Sports Super 14 is again rewarded with selection on the left wing – ahead of Joe Rokocoko.


BLUES v SHARKS – Durban.


SUNDAY 1am (NZ Time).
