The Blues travel to Brisbane to play the Reds in stifling heat, then travel to Gosford to play New South Wales next weekend.

Blues coach David Nucifora said the week long trip is a great chance to look at all his players.

Nucifora said they are taking 28 fulltime players, plus seven training squad players and all of them will see game time over the two matches.

Nucifora sees the clash with the Reds as a good challenge, as the squad flew out on Friday, and had to adjust to a three hour time difference, as well as 30 degree heat at night time.

The match will be played in four quarters, with unlimited substitutions.
