Kia ora, good evening and welcome to Newshub's live coverage of the Blues v Western Force Super Rugby Pacific clash at Auckland's Eden Park.

After their 'away' win over Moana Pasifika at the same venue last week, the Aucklanders are back for a home game against the side currently holding down bottom position on the competition ladder.

Blues coach Vern Cotter has responded by resting some battered frontliners, including concussed captain Patrick Tuipulotu, and All Blacks Mark Tele'a, Stephen Perofeta and Finlay Christie.

A bonus-point victory tonight would catapult the Blues to the top of the table, alongside the unbeaten Hurricanes, who are enjoying a bye week.

The Force's only win this season came against Australian rivals Queensland Reds, but they were victims of a Lautoka ambush by Fijian Drua last week.

Join us at 7pm for kickoff.
