There a lot of expectations around the Blues this season, the team made a good season last year which was a season of transition with arrival of new and famous headcoach Sir John Kirwan, and now "we" expect the Blues to improve this season and qualify for the play-offs.
Unfortunately, they made a shy start with one win and 2 losses, and this match against the Lions is already a must win match for the Blues who need a win in order to stay competitive in the New Zealander Conference.
I think that they can win this match, they will play against the Lions who did an unexpected good start but I think that this South african team is still a small level under the New Zealander teams and especially I think that the offensive and audacious rugby of the Blues will worry Lions's defense which is the most penalized in this Super Rugby so far.
Moreover, there are couple of injuries on the team which can be a problem, I think especially that the one of Derrick Minnie is a huge loss, his activity on defense and offense was one of the key of Lions's wins against Stormers and Cheetahs.
Also, since the return of Lions in Super Rugby in 2007, they always lost against the Blues.
So, I think that the Blues will win this match, I play with this small handicap of 2 points.
