Rieko Ioane gets hat-trick in Blues Super Rugby opener win over Rebels

Rieko Ioane gets hat-trick in Blues Super Rugby opener win over Rebels

Young star Rieko Ioane scored three tries as the Blues put away the Rebels in the opening Super Rugby 2017 match in Melbourne earlier today. The 19-year-old showed how potent the Blues midfield will be this year, with Rene Ranger on the bench and Sonny Bill Williams still set to return.

Unfortunately for Ranger his time on the field was short lived, as he came on late in the game and left just as quickly, yellow carded for an infringement at the breakdown.

The 56-18 victory included seven tries, and one great individual effort in particular from scrum half Augustine Pulu. Fly half Ihaia West contributed six conversions and two penalties.

The Blues won’t want to get too excited too soon, but it was a brilliant start to their campaign.
