RUGBY: Au­gus­tine Pulu has been dumped as Blues cap­tain for 2019. New head coach Leon Mac­Don­ald has an­nounced lock Patrick Tuip­u­lotu and open­side flanker Blake Gib­son have been handed the reins. Gib­son was the orig­i­nal cap­tain for Auck­land in their Mitre 10 Cup vic­tory but suf­fered an in­jury early on to rule him out. Tuip­u­lotu was his deputy but only played one game be­fore be­ing called up to the All Blacks af­ter in­jury.
