Fans to go blue
Fans of the Auckland Blues are being encouraged to don their blue gear for tomorrow night’s clash with the Chiefs.
The mighty local derby between the Blues and the Chiefs always means an onslaught of Chiefs fans heading up State Highway 1.
‘‘This is the Blues’ fortress and we need to hold on to the home advantage by owning that stadium on Saturday night – on the field and in the stands,’’ Blues head coach Sir John Kirwan says.
‘‘We need our fans to get their Blue gear on – wigs, hats, scarves, whatever they’ve got that’s blue and really ‘bring it’ for our last home game of the season,’’ Kirwan says.
Pre-purchased tickets can be used to travel to and from the match on trains and special event buses. Go to theblues. co.nz for details.
