Collins back for Blues

1:08 pm on 14 May 2009

The return of verteran flanker Justin Collins will provide a major boost for the Blues as they attempt to finish their Super 14 season on a high with victory over the Crusaders at Eden Park on Saturday night.

After suffering from concussion in the Blues' round 11 loss to the Reds, Collins has not featured in the team since and will need a final medical check prior to kick off to clear him.

But Collins has recovered well and is expected to be fighting fit and ready to help restore some pride to a Blues team hurting from three consecutive losses.

Otherwise its the same side that took to the field against the Brumbies last weekend.
