Nacewa starts at fifteen for Blues

Isa Nacewa will start at 15 in the Blues second pre Super14 game on Thursday against the Reds at Ballymore in Brisbane.

Nacewa is a fairly versatile backline player and can play almost anywhere in the backline. He played well at fullback in 2006 and then in 2007 he moved to flyhalf.

Playing Nacewa at fullback gives Blues fans a strong hint that the No.10 shirt will not be fought over between Nacewa and Nick Evans and that Evans will be the first choice flyhalf for the Blues in 2008.

The Blues will fly out of Auckland Airport on Wednesday January 30 at 9.30am (flight NZ135) and will return back in Auckland at 5.30pm on February 1 (flight NZ136).

The game kicks off at 9pm (NZ time).
