Auckland Blues 2016 Season Preview
Auckland Blues fans should be salivating at the prospect of their rugby team doing well in the 2016 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 - new Head Coach Tana Umaga and the Blues coaching staff have recruited well. Couple that with proven performers (and now World Cup winners) such as Jerome Kaino and Charlie Faumuina, the 2016 Blues side has an enviable roster.

For all the Blues 2016 rugby games, please refer to the event listings below. Please note that these are the match details for the Blues Auckland-based fixtures for 2016.
