Fairfax have reported that Blues captain Augustine Pulu will miss his side’s two-game tour of South Africa.


The 28-year-old halfback suffered a foot injury during the Blues’ 27-21 loss at the hands of the Chiefs on Friday.

21-year-old Sam Nock will share halfback duties with Jonathan Ruru as the Blues travel to South Africa to take on the Lions and the Stormers.

Two-cap All Black Pulu is in his second season with the Blues, and his first season as captain.

Fortunately for the Blues, Sonny Bill Williams is set to make his return after missing the Chiefs clash with a knee injury.
