Most could be forgiven for giving up on the Blues.

A poor season became a nightmare when the club slumped to its latest defeat to Argentina’s Jaguares - the first NZ franchise to be burdened with the dubious distinction.

But some players like Ross Wright refuse to give up.

The Northland hard man grew up watching the Blues, and despite the poor run the team is experiencing, he is excited at the prospect of playing more in this jersey.

“Growing up as a little fella watching players from up North playing for the jersey, you one day want to be there so for me to be there I’d say it’s a dream come true.”

Play-off hopes have been banished after their shock loss to the Jaguars, but Wright says the team will continue to give it 100% for the rest of the season and he hopes to be able to help.

“Obviously game time is what you want and I’m just trying to put myself out there in training in front of the coaches and hopefully get another shot.”

The Blues will play Israel Folau and the Waratahs at Brookvale Oval on Saturday night.
