10:23 - Thanks for joining us for this match - be sure to check out our Live Updates from the Brumbies v Stormers match up at 10:40!


10:21 - The Blues jump from fifth to second in the New Zealand Conference and to seventh in the Overall standings.

The Cheetahs stay bottom of both the SA Conference and the Overall log


10:21 - The Cheetahs remain winless on their Australasian tour


10:21 - FULL-TIME AT EDEN PARK

The Blues win 40-30


10:20 - Full-time siren sounds, but the Cheetahs are awarded a penalty.

They can't win, but they can score and walk away with two bonus points...


10:18 - BABY SKINSTAD ARRIVES

Former Springbok skipper Bob Skinstad has confirmed on Twitter the arrival of a son - Johnny - weighing in at 3.59kg


10:16 - Oops

Cheetahs butcher a try-scoring opportunity as Lodewyk de Jager knocks on a couple of metres out


10:15 - Penalty to the Cheetahs who kick excellently to the corner, some 7m out


10:15 - Into the final 5 minutes now...


10:11 - Suddenly the Blues have caught fire and the Cheetahs have gone back into their shell.

10 points behind and having scored only 3 tries, the Cheetahs are currently leaving Eden Park empty-handed...


10:10 - Penalty to the Blues and Hickey lands the three-pointer to stretch the Blues' lead to 40-30 after 72 minutes


10:08 - Just over 10 minutes remaining in this enthralling encounter


10:07 - Nervous much Blues fans... ?


10:06 - Wowzers!

Another superb backline move by the Cheetahs as they stretch the Blues and Hennie Daniller goes over to make it a seven-point game after Watts adds the conversion

Blues lead 37-20 after 68 minutes


10:06 - TRY!


10:05 - Benji Marshall enters the fray. I've got a lot of time for the skills of the former NRL star


10:04 - No surprise as Simon Hickey adds the conversion.

The Blues stretch their lead to 37-23 after 66 minutes


10:03 - That man Tony Woodcock crashes over from 3 inches away to give the Blues their fourth - and bonus point - try


10:03 - TRY!


10:01 - The Blues rumble forward through their pack and go close a number of times to scoring. 

Penalty to the Blues and they elect to scrum rather than take the sure-three points and stretch their lead to more than a converted try


9:59 - Watts adds the conversion.

The Blues lead 30-23 after 60 minutes

GAME ON!


9:58 - Fabulous backline move by the Cheetahs as wing Cornal Hendricks slices through the Blues' backline and dummies left and right before diving over.


9:58 - TRY!


9:55 - Plenty of handling mistakes now creeping into both teams' play. Very stop-start at the moment


9:54 - Good grief - ref calls a forward pass on a pass that looked fine at first glance... Assistant ref kept on running and didn't seem to agree


9:53 - Yet another scrum penalty to the Blues.

Not sure how happy skipper Adriaan Strauss is...


9:51 - The Cheetahs looking more attacking in the second stanza. No change to the half-time score after 15 minutes of the second half


9:51 - Hayden Triggs also on for the Blues at lock


9:50 - Oi vey...


9:50 - And on come Nonu and Kaino!


9:50 - And after all the Cheetahs pressure they concede a penalty at the scrum and the Blues clear to 30m from their line


9:48 - Nyakane charges like a wounded buffalo over the tryline, but he's held up. Well done to whoever was brave enough to get under the massive front rower!


9:47 - Illegally turned over by the Blues and the Cheetahs set up another 5m lineout


9:46 - The Cheetahs have scored 4 tries from 5m lineouts this season, can they make it 5?


9:46 - The ref goes back to the corner for a penalty which the Cheetahs put into touch, setting up a lineout...


9:45 - Super backline play by the Cheetahs as they flood forward, but they're held up over the Blues' tryline


9:44 - Odd decision by the Blues as they decide to kick a penalty from near the halfway line rather than set up a lineout


9:43 - Scary for the Cheetahs as Ma'a Nonu and Jerome Kaino leave the Blues' bench and start warming up...


9:41 - The Blues need just one more try for a bonus point - and the way this match has opened up, one would expect them to do so...


9:41 - More scrappy play from both sides in the opening exchanges of the second half


9:38 - No doubt some stern words spoken in both changing rooms at the break


9:38 - AND WE'RE UNDER WAY IN THE SECOND HALF!


9:25 - Join us in 10 minutes for the second half!


9:25 - The Blues lead 30-16 at half-time at Eden Park.


9:24 - They have a shot at goal through replacement Elgar Watts who is SUCCESSFUL!


9:23 - One last penalty to the Cheetahs as the half-time siren sounds. What will they do?


9:22 - The Cheetahs are bossing the Blues at scrum-time as half-time approaches


9:19 - ***BLITZBOKKE UPDATE***

The SA Sevens side have beaten Japan 33-5 in their second match at the HSBC Japan Sevens in Tokyo


9:17 - TWEET

Goosen and Taute made from the same rib? Properly injury prone ... - Front Row Grunt


9:16 - Costly yellow for the Cheetahs as the Blues have scored 17 points in the 10 minutes that Boom Prinsloo has been off the field


9:16 - DOUBLE change for the Cheetahs as Johan Goosen and Caylib Oosthuizen leave the field, replaced by Elgar Watts and Trevor Nyakane, respectively.


9:15 - Blues lead 30-13 after 34 minutes


9:15 - And that man Hickey adds the conversion! No stopping that man off the kicking tee...


9:13 - Oh dear... festival rugby by the Blues as they swing it wide, Jackson Willison puts through a grubber which Willie le Roux makes an absolute hash of and wing Tevita Li pounces to score.


9:13 - TRY!


9:12 - Anyway, moving on... Hickey adds the conversion and the Blues are suddenly out to a 23-13 lead after 31 minutes


9:12 - Kudos to the NZ commentators who agree it shouldn't have been a try...


9:11 - Crumbs, does ANY official know what's going on these days!?


9:11 - TMO says no try, referee DISAGREES and awards the TRY!


9:10 - Doesn't look like a try to me... but the way TMOs have ruled this year, who knows!


9:10 - Referee goes upstairs checking for a double movement...


9:09 - The Blues MAY have scored as they break out from deep inside their own half


9:08 - Hickey adds a penalty to the Blues' tally to give the home side a 16-13 lead after 29 minutes


9:07 - Cheetahs concede a penalty at the scrum, Blues elect to go for goal - even against 14 men - for fear of what the referee might decide...


9:06 - TWEET

Harsh call as Boom gets a yellow,tell you what this ref is taking no nonsense,blowing it straight to the lawbook! - Breyton Paulse


9:06 - Blues knock on under the Cheetahs' poles. Lucky escape for the Bloemfontein side...


9:04 - Bit harsh, even the Kiwi commentators aren't sure of the reason...


9:04 - YELLOW CARD to Boom Prinsloo!


9:00 - Goosen brings up his 250th Super Rugby point but is seen shaking his wrist/arm... oh dear


8:59 - And Goosen adds the conversion to level the match at 13-13 after 21 minutes


8:58 - Boom Prinsloo barges over after an attacking lineout


8:58 - TRY!


8:56 - Blues lead 13-6 after 18 minutes


8:55 - TWEET

Perhaps if all refs blew like this, then the game would be played as it is meant to be played? So many things have allowed to slide - Front Row Grunt


8:54 - The first try of the match goes to Blues flank Steven Luatua who scores next to the uprights


8:54 - TRY!


8:48 - Mmm, now the commentators are urging the Argentine referee to "put his whistle away" after he penalises the Cheetahs from being in front of the kicker at restart time.


8:47 - Crickey!

And straight after the resultant kick-off, that man Hickey levels the scores at 6-6 after 10 minutes!


8:46 - And just like that the Cheetahs are back in front through a second Goosen penalty...


8:44 - And we're all square at Eden Park as Simon Hickey lands a penalty after a "no arms" tackle by the Cheetahs.

Hickey has yet to miss a kick in this year's competition: 9 from 9 to date... 


8:43 - Lock Liaki Moli is apparently playing his "blazer game" for the Blues...

Anyone have a clue what that means?!


8:42 - PENALTY to the Cheetahs (Goosen) as they take a 3-0 lead after 5 minutes


8:41 - PICTURE

Welcome to Sport24's LIVE scoring and interactive commentary on today's Super Rugby match between the Blues and Cheetahs in Auckland!


  • 80'

    The full time score is 40-30 to the Blues here at Eden Park! The game was a little bit disrupted due to the ref loving the sound of his own whistle, especially in the first half, but the second half showcased some lovely running rugby from the Cheetahs who ran in two incredible tries! The Blues were far more clinical on the day and although looked less dangerous, were far more composed and that was the difference tonight. The 17 points scored whilst Prinsloo was off the field was the deciding factor as the Blues took full advantage and ran in 17 points and from there the visitors were playing catch up!

  • 80'

    Their attack comes to nothing as possession is lost! The Blues have won this contest tonight with a bonus point! The Cheetahs leave with nothing.

  • 80'

    Blues attack strongly in the Cheetahs 22m. Captain courageous, Adrian Strauss wins his side a penalty at the breakdown. The Cheetahs will have a crack at getting some points to get a bonus point of their own.

  • 78'

    Cheetahs win a tighthead and go on attack! But this time Le Roux is penalized for not releasing at the breakdown!

  • 77'

    De Jager spills the ball in the collision to ruin a promising play! Hugely disappointing for the visitors!

  • 76'

    Labuschagne does well at the breakdown to win his side a much needed penalty. Watts finds a good touch deep inside the Blues 22m. Cheetahs must score to give them a chance!

  • 75'

    de Jager dishes up his second dose of pain this evening with a big hit which wins his team the ball! Cheetahs have a scrum inside their half.

  • 72'

    PENALTY, BLUES, HICKEY, 40-30. Great strike from Hickey to give his side some breathing space with 8 minutes to play.

  • 70'

    Blues win an important penalty inside the Cheetahs half! Le Roux makes a bit of a mistake as he chucks a long to an isolated Hendricks. The Blues rush up on him and force the penalty.

  • 69'

    CONVERSION, WATTS, 37-30. Watts makes no mistake again as they are back in striking distance!

  • 68'

    TRY! CHEETAHS, DANILLER, 37-28. Cheetahs magic again! Sadie shows and goes straight through! He finds Hendricks in support who offloads to Daniller on the inside who goes in over under the poles! Great rugby!

  • 64'

    CONVERSION, HICKEY, 37-23. Blues extend their lead!

  • 63'

    TRY! BLUES, WOODCOCK, 35-23. Saili runs strongly from the back of the scrum! Woodcock picks and goes and goes over for a 5-pointer!

  • 62'

    The Blues attack strongly off the reset and come close. They've won a scrum just outside the Cheetahs try line!

  • 61'

    CONVERSION, WATTS, 30-23. Cheetahs are back in this one now!

  • 60'

    TRY!!! CHEETAHS, HENDRICKS, 30-21. Cheetahs magic! That deserved several exclamation marks! Le Roux joins the back line at second receiver off the scrum, dummy runners everywhere, Willie throws a flat one and Hendricks comes sauntering through at pace! He steps the last line line of defense and goes over for one of the tries of the season!

  • 58'

    Apparently Goosen's injury may be more serious than first presumed and has been taken to hospital for x-rays.

  • 58'

    Cracking play from the Cheetahs! Le Roux makes a half break from his own half and pops to Benjamin! Benjamin throws a lovely long pass to Hendricks on the wing but the pass has been called forward! Not sure about that one. I''m sure the hands went back there and the momentum carried the ball forward.

  • 54'

    The Cheetahs attack strongly with de Jager dishing out some pain to Jackson Willison! They go wide and spill the ball again on the front foot. Ooooef, in slow motion the hit on Willison looks epic!

  • 53'

    The Blues win a penalty at the scrum and a wasted opportunity for the Cheetahs! Nonu and Kaino enter the field and get a huge cheer from the crowd!

  • 52'

    The Blues make a turnover through Luatua. Strauss sees red and is in quick for the next ruck and wins the visitors a penalty. They set up a line out 5m out. The Cheetahs push over again but are held up yet again! 5m scrum to the Cheetahs. Good defense from the Blues here.

  • 49'

    Hickey's effort pulls up just short and the Cheetahs begin to run from their own half! They manage to hold onto the ball this time as they attack strongly before Hendricks makes a cracking break! He offloads to benjamin who gets pulled up just short! The forwards crash and go over but are held up! They go back for a penalty. Much better from the Cheetahs!

  • 45'

    Philip van der Walt is penalized for being off his feet at the breakdown. Hickey will have a shot from just inside the visitors half.

  • 44'

    Cheetahs win a penalty and find touch in the Blues half. They need to build some phases here and get an early score. MORE sloppy play. The line out is loose and Cornal Hendricks fumbles a ball at his feet.

  • 42'

    The Cheetahs get a rare turnover in their own half and they go wide as le Roux steps into the first receiver position! He throws a wide one and Pretorious can't hold on to it as he knocks on.

  • 41'

    Hickey gets the second half started! Cheetahs miss the ball completely as it bounces out!

  • 40'

    Well another disappointing half of rugby from the Cheetahs! The Blues haven''t been anything special but the Cheetahs have just gifted them a comfortable 14 point lead at the break. The Cheetahs seemed to have the edge in a half that was dominated more by the ref and his whistle (plus the strange overruling of the TMO) up until Prinsloo was sent his marching orders. From their it was sloppy play from the Cheetahs which will have Naka Drotske fuming at the break. Cheetahs are not out of it and will need to score early and keep the ball longer in order to win they game!

  • 40'

    PENALTY, CHEETAHS, WATTS, 30-16. Good start from Watts!

  • 39'

    Cheetahs win a penalty and Elgar Watts whose now on for an injured Goosen will have a shot at goal before half time. Gooosen''s wrist injury doesn''t seem too serious.

  • 39'

    Great scrum from the Cheetahs but the Blues secure the ball and crash it up. Moala is a demon in contact as he bounces Benjamin for the second time tonight. They eventually clear but not that far out.

  • 38'

    The Cheetahs run strongly before De Jager loses possession in contact. The Blues will have a scrum deep in their 22m. Cheetahs will need a big shove here to put pressure on the home side. They need points!

  • 36'

    Something finally goes the Cheetahs way as they win a penalty from the scrum. They kick for touch and find it inside the Blues 22m. Prinsloo is back on the park now. They definitely need a try here before half time.

  • 32'

    CONVERSION, HICKEY, 30-13. Hickey's flawless night continues!

  • 31'

    TRY! BLUES, LI, 28-13. Soft, soft try. Willison puts another grubber through and Willie le Roux makes a complete hash of it as he knocks it on and loses his footing! Willison picks up and pops to Tevita Li for an easy try!

  • 31'

    CONVERSION, HICKEY, 23-13. Hickey continues his form!

  • 30'

    TRY! BLUES, MOALA, 21-13. Okay. The TMO stated no-try due to a double movement but Moala, but the ref has gone an overruled it and awarded the try! I'm sure we'll hear more about this one!

  • 30'

    Cheetahs battling with 14 men! They fail to gather a Blues kick and the Blues go wild on attack! They work their way close before Moala goes over! They going upstairs to check if it's a legit try!

  • 29'

    PENALTY, BLUES, HICKEY, 16-13. Easy kick for Hickey.

  • 28'

    The Blues win a penalty from the scrum. They opt for the safe option and decide to take the 3 instead of going for the try!

  • 27'

    The Blues waste an opportunity as they pick and go from the back of the scrum and knock the ball on! Cheetahs will try slow it down and get out of their half!

  • 26'

    Great attacking play from the Blues! Willison puts a grubber through and they are all over Daniller who is there to gather. They drive him backwards towards the line and turnover the ball and almost score! Prinsloo prevented the try illegally from an offside position and has been yellow carded for it! Attacking scrum for the Blues against 14 men!

  • 22'

    CONVERSION, GOOSEN, 13-13. Goosen nails it from the corner!

  • 21'

    TRY! CHEETAHS, PRINSLOO, 13-11. No problems this time for the Cheetahs! Textbook driving maul from 5m out.

  • 20'

    The drive is brought up short but the Blues are penalized for being offside. They receive a warning. Cheetahs set up another line out.

  • 19'

    Blues once again penalized for being in front of the kicker. The Cheetahs have opted for the line out and will most likely go for the driving maul!

  • 17'

    CONVERSION, HICKEY, 13-6. Hickey continues his good form!

  • 16'

    TRY! BLUES, LUATUA, 11-6. The Blues win the ball after a loose Cheetahs line out. They work their way into the 22m and then Luatua crashes over from short range!

  • 15'

    The Cheetahs give a way a short arm for an early push at the scrum and the Blues kick long to get out of their half!

  • 13'

    Tevita Li spills a kick from Goosen right on his 22m line. Blues not looking completely relaxed at the moment. Cheetahs will have an attacking scrum, let's hopefully see some Cheetah magic!

  • 11'

    PENALTY, BLUES, HICKEY, 6-6. Hickey also seems to have his kicking boots on tonight!

  • 9'

    Now Cheetahs give away a penalty on the opposite side of the field for obstruction after receiving the ball from the kickoff!

  • 9'

    PENALTY, CHEETAHS, GOOSEN, 3-6. No mistake from Goosen again!

  • 8'

    Blues are penalized (Braid) for being in front of the kicker. Goosen should have another 3 points here. Straight in front on the 22m.

  • 7'

    PENALTY, BLUES, HICKEY, 3-3. Hickey slots his first one!

  • 7'

    Cheetahs are penalized just inside their own half. Max van Dyk didn't use arms in a tackle around the fridge of a ruck. Hickey will have a shot from about 40m out!

  • 5'

    PENALTY, CHEETAHS, GOOSEN, 0-3. No mistake from Goosen!

  • 4'

    First mistake of the night by the Blues who knock on after a line out on the half way line. Scrum to Cheetahs on the centre of the park. They win a short arm from the scrum and take it quickly and immediately look dangerous! They swiftly work their way into the Blues 22m! Eventually they win a penalty straight in front. Great start from the visitors!

  • 1'

    And Goosen gets us underway! He goes long and Weepu clears!

  • 0'

    Blues news: The Blues have made six changes to the starting XV that narrowly lost to the Lions last week for Saturday's match against the Cheetahs at Eden Park, After impressing when he came off the bench, Simon Hickey has been given the nod to start at fly-half ahead of Chris Noakes. Jackson Willison replaces Pita Ahki at inside centre, while Charles Piutau moves to his favoured position of full-back in place of Benji Marshall who drops to the bench as Tevita Li starts on the left wing.

  • 0'

    Cheetahs news: Cheetahs coach Naka Drotské has made three changes to his starting XV for Saturday's clash with the Blues. In two injury-forced tweaks, Drotské has decided to start regular wing Rayno Benjamin at centre in place of Francois Venter, while full-back Hennie Daniller comes in at wing for the injured Raymond Rhule. Among the forwards, Jean Cook replaces Lappies Labuschagne in a tactical change with the latter relegated to the replacements bench. Griquas centre Howard Mnisi, who has yet to make his Super Rugby debut, comes into the matchday 23 as midfield cover.

  • 0'

    Welcome to Eden Park in Auckland for the coverage of the Blues vs Cheetahs Super Rugby clash! A mouth-watering fixture tonight with both teams keen on playing positive running rugby. Both teams have struggled this season and will be looking to get a win tonight to get their season back on track. The question tonight is; can the Cheetahs defense find some of its form from 2013? Looking forward to this clash, so stay tuned!
