Only two of the Blues' World Cup winning All Blacks will feature in Saturday's pre-season Super Rugby match against the Hurricanes.

New Zealand player of the year Jerome Kaino and lock Anthony Boric will suit up for the match in Whangarei.

Coach Pat Lam says they're the two All Blacks who're in the right condition to play in their pre-season opener.

With Piri Weepu unavailable, Michael Hobbs will start for the Blues at first-five, with Gareth Anscombe to play at 10 in the second half.
