Solid pre-sales despite Blues bad start to season

The Blues coach Pat Lam admits Friday's home Super Rugby game against the Hurricanes is a must-win.

Pre-sales for the match number an impressive 21,000 plus despite the Blues having lost three of their first four games.

But Lam's not sure how many of the fans are still behind their injury- and suspension- ravaged team.

Lam's missing five All Blacks, including captain Keven Mealamu, and Isaia Toeava who's possibly out for the season with a stress fracture in his hip.
