Blues No.9 Steve Devine has been hit by a viral infection and this has forced one change to the Blues starting line up to face the Crusaders in Christchurch on Saturday.

Coach David Nucifora said medical staff were not yet sure of Devine’s exact problem but Devine was feeling tired and lethargic.

“We didn’t think he was going to be right in time and for a game like this you need people who are 100 per cent,” he said.
