Anyone can contribute to The Roar and have their work featured alongside some of Australia’s most prominent sports journalists.
The Blues have a poor record away to the Bulls which they’ll be hoping to break in today’s Super Rugby meeting. Join The Roar for live scores from 2:15am (AEDT).
Still waiting on major signing Beauden Barrett to join the side after his off-season switch, the Blues have been solid performers so far this year, with one win and two losses so far – the defeats coming against competition favourites the Chiefs and Crusaders.
The Bulls, meanwhile, remain winless with two defeats and a bye to their name. They’ll be hoping home-ground advantage can turn that tide today.
