Hurricanes vs Blues Betting Tips, Predictions & Odds

The Blues visit the Sky Stadium on Saturday to face the Hurricanes in a crucial Super Rugby Aotearoa clash. The visitors suffered their first defeat of the competition against the Crusaders last week but have shown enough quality over the season to beat an inconsistent Hurricanes side.

Hurricanes Form & News


The Hurricanes have been inconsistent throughout 2020. In Super Rugby Aotearoa they have won two and lost two.

On the opening weekend of the tournament they went down to the Blues 30-20 at Eden Park before they lost 39-25 to the Crusaders.

Since then the Canes have beaten the Chiefs 25-18 away and then saw off the Highlanders 17-11 at home in a match that was heavily affected by the weather conditions.

After two wins the Hurricanes will want some continuity in selection but they'll be hopeful of welcoming back hooker Dane Coles. He will undergo a fitness test later this week.

Blues Form & News


The Blues have had an impressive start to the Super Rugby Aotearoa competition which has seen them pick up three wins from their four matches.

They began with a 30-20 victory over the Hurricanes at home and then beat the Chiefs 24-12 away. That was followed by a narrow 27-24 victory over the Highlanders in Auckland.

In their last match the Blues lost a top of the table clash against he Crusaders away. The 26-15 scoreline doesn't do the Blues justice as the two teams were within a couple of points of each other for most of the match.

Eighth-man Hoskins Sotutu has been labeled a possible doubt. Other than him there are no further reported injuries. Beauden Barrett returns to his old home ground and will certainly want to make an impression.

Hurricanes vs Blues Head to Head


The Hurricanes have a 13-7 advantage over the Blues in their last 20 meetings.

Their last encounter ended with the Blues winning 30-20 at Eden Park in the opening Super Rugby Aotearoa round.
