West called into Blues squad

6:55 am on 15 April 2014

The Hawkes Bay first-five-eighths Ihaia West has been called into the Blues squad to replace the injured Baden Kerr who has been ruled out for the rest of the Super rugby season.

After fracturing a bone at the base of his thumb in a pre-season match against the Hurricanes, 24-year-old Kerr then fractured two fingers playing rugby for his club side Karaka last month and was forced to have surgery, ruling him out for at least 12 weeks.
