The forecast is for blue skies, sunny and hot in Auckland on Sunday - a perfect forecast for rugby at Eden Park.

Blues fans have pleaded for afternoon games for years, so this is their chance to get behind the 16.05 (local time) kickoff against the Bulls.

The Bulls - three-time champions like the Blues - will actually play in their pink alternative strip.

That means ref Garratt Williamson will have to leave his new pink strip at home.

He wil be in the plain old black and white.
