Blues: FOX Rugby Super Coach Preview

The Blues seem to be up and down every single year. With a great side on paper the Blues are always tipped to do well pre-season.  With the World Cup around the corner the Blues have a squad full of players on the fringe of the All Black side, I reckon they will have a good season based on the fact there are many players who will push for an All Black spot.

The Good

Luke Braid(Backrow): Probably the most unlucky player in the whole of NZ, he works his socks off every single game and yet seems to constantly be overlooked for the New Zealand national side. Braid is Fantasy gold and usually rewards managers with loads of points. If you can afford Braid then you should certainly consider putting him in your side for the season.

Ihaia West (Flyhalf): Really great player, had a fantastic ITM Cup and could potentially be a bargain for your Fantasy side. Certainly worth consideration. The one potential problem could be Wests gametime with Simon Hickey also in the squad.

Patrick Tuipulotu(Lock):  Big Pat was a star for the Blues in 2014, I expect another big season from the young man.

Francis Saili (Centre): A personal favourite! Unfortunately for Saili he blows a bit hot and cold. If in form Saili is unstoppable-watch this space!

Monitor:

Steven Luatua(Backrow): Luatau was a fantasy god in 2013, his form dipped terribly in 2014. If Lautau can regain his form of 2013 he will be a crucial player for your Fantasy side.

Charlie Faumuina(Prop): Charlie works hard for a big man which results in decent fantasy points. The one problem he faces is that the Blues scrum is not that great which usually results in penalties against Charlie. If the Blues scrum mans up a bit this season Faumuina will reward you with great fantasy scores.

Pita Ah Ki (Centre): Tipped to be a good player for the Blues this season though I am not convinced just yet. I reckon you should watch him for a couple games to see how he gets on.
