The Blues will be sweating over the fitness of captain Luke Braid ahead of their fixture with the Reds after he suffered a shoulder injury on Friday.

Braid sustained the problem in the win over the Waratahs and is likely to miss this week's game, with Brendon O'Connor in line to replace him.

Should the openside not recover in time, veteran hooker Keven Mealamu should captain the side.
