Blues stand in captain Luke Braid said that he felt the Aucklanders had performed well in the first half of their loss to the Hurricanes but blamed more silly mistakes for the loss.
This week's 35-19 loss for the Blues was the second time the former Champions have lost to the Hurricanes this season after they let the Hurricanes snatch a 25-26 victory in Auckland in Round five.
This 11th round loss was their ninth Super Rugby loss of the season and keeps them rooted to the bottom of the table.
Braid said he felt they did well to create pressure in the first half but the wheels fell off when they went behind just before the break.
"As soon as we start chasing games we start to lose our composure," Blues captain Luke Braid said.
"I think we went well in the first half but as soon as they got some points on us we started to push things and it was a bit of copy and paste from last week"
"The same errors (are) just creeping in."
All Blacks center and Hurricanes captain Conrad Smith scored two tries in the Round five clash and followed it up by scoring one try and creating another in this match.
Smith praised the Blues for their defence despite the Hurricanes outscoring them by five tries to one.
"We just held it together enough," Smith said.
"Auckland are a tough team to play."
"We wanted to make sure we kept our game together, kept our structure together and knew we'd get points and that's what happened."
"The Blues defended very well. But I just think we adjusted our game, read the way they were playing and that's what got us some good headway."
