Back Blues to edge their clash with Reds in Samoa

Auckland outfit may be hampered by heat and injuries

All Blacks centre Sonny Bill Williams is among the Blues' injuries

Blues v Reds
Sky Sports 1, 8.35am Friday

The Blues are 13-point favourites to complete the set of wins over Australian outfits in this inaugural Super Rugby game in Samoa but the value bet may be a success of between one and 12 points at 9-4.

Conditions in Apia are forecast to be hot and humid so for all the desire of both teams to play exciting, running rugby and minimal playoff-picture pressure, scoring tries could be difficult.

New Zealand won a July 2015 Test in Samoa 25-16 with only a try apiece registered.

All Blacks Sonny Bill Williams, Charlie Faumuina and George Moala are among the Blues’ injuries after a tough month and while the Reds lost 40-26 in Brisbane to the Force last Friday, George Smith, Hendrik Tui and Scott Higginbotham should make it a battle at the breakdown.

Recommendation
Blues to win by one to 12 points
