McAlister back on the bench for Blues vs Stormers


Super Rugby Quick Links : Home | News | Fixtures | Super Rugby Betting | Standings |

Luke McAlister is named on the bench for the Blues after coach David Nucifora named an unchanged starting backline. The only change to the starting line up is in the pack.

Isa Nacewa retains the flyhalf position while Lavea is dropped completely for the match. McAlistair on the bench will provide enough cover for reserve kicking and all round back play.

As mentioned earlier the only change is in the pack and is a forced one with Angus Macdonald who is out for the season. Onosai’i Tololima Auva’a comes in for Macdonald.

If the Blues want to retain any hope of reaching the Semi finals they will have to win this match and with a bonus point.
