After 6th straight JC Bowl, Blues look to 5th Paul Potiki Shield

The Blues have continued their winning ways in 2014, winning a sixth straight JC Bowl and are now eyeing up another Paul Potiki Memorial Shield.

Coach Andrew Robinson says team work has been the key to their success.

“As always our success was really a team effort with a number of guys stepping up at different times,” he says.

Although players such as vice captain and lock Pat Houghton, prop Ross McIsaac and outside back Todd Young, who has scored nine tries, have been consistent performers.

Andrew has said there have been no surprises off the field but the usual issues such as injuries or players making themselves unavailable have been the most difficult challenge, but he believes they have been able to field a strong team each Saturday.

The Blues will be targeting a fifth straight Paul Potiki Memorial Shield.

The key match in their defence is likely to be against Tawa on July 5th apart of the newly formed Under 85s day which will see all the 85s teams play at the same venue (yet to be arranged) on the same day.

The Blues kick off their defence against the Poneke Cavs at the SPC Artificial this Friday night at 6.30pm
