A number of All Blacks are expected to be in action when the Blues take on the Waratahs this weekend.Coach David Nucifora has delayed the naming of his team until he has seen them in another training session.

Nucifora admits he is not overly concerned about the match, and is more interested in getting his players ready for the Super 14.

The Blues’ All Blacks are expected to have a run in this second Super 14 pre-season game, although a number are feeling the pinch.

26 of the 28 contracted players are likely to play, although Nucifora admits that the late additions to the camp – Doug Howlett, Joe Rokocoko, Keven Mealamu, Ali Williams and Woodcock – are said to be finding it a little difficult to get into the swing of things.

He says most people struggle with their first week back at work, and the All Black players are no different.
