Auckland Blues 2018 Season Preview
Auckland Blues 2018 Season Preview
Auckland Blues fans should be salivating at the prospect of their rugby team doing well in the 2018 Super Rugby season.

Having had a lean run of success in the last few seasons, every indication so far should be that New Zealand's largest rugby catchment will once again be at the forefront of New Zealand teams and a very good chance of winning the Super competition outright - a feat they haven't managed to do since 2003.

There's good reason for this optimism - the star-studded backline featuring the likes of Sonny Bill Williams, Rieko Ioane, Matt Duffie and George Moala is complimented by a workmanline forward pack that includes James Parsons, Ofa Tuungafasi, Patrick Tuipulotu and Jerome Kaino.

For all the Blues 2018 rugby games, please refer to the event listings below. Please note that these are the match details for the Blues Auckland-based fixtures for 2018.
