Blues A in action this weekend

Talented first five-eighth Stephen Perofeta is set to start for the Blues A team this weekend against the Chiefs.

He’s one of four NZ U20s representatives in the team, alongside Jordan Trainor, Hapakuki Moala-Liava’a, and Sam Nock, who will captain the side. They’ll play alongside Rene Ranger who will gain valuable game time on the weekend.

It will also mark English-import Connor Collett’s first involvement with a Blues side after impressing for North Harbour last season.

The two development sides are set to meet at Pakuranga Rugby Football Club at 2:30pm on Saturday. It’s open to the public, so get down there and support our Blues.
