Mealamu set to break Super Rugby record

Blues and All Blacks hooker Keven Mealamu is set to break the record for the most Super Rugby caps of all time when the Auckland side host the Lions at North Harbour Stadium.

Mealamu was rested for the Blues opening three matches on tour but is expected to return this week for his 163rd Super Rugby cap.

If Mealamu comes on this weekend he will pass former Wallabies lock Nathan Sharpe who is the current record holder.

Thirty-five-year-old Mealamu says that even though he has been playing for 15 years he still has as much passion today for the game as he has wver had.

“I’m playing with guys that when I was playing my first game were probably about five years old so I think that probably puts it in perspective, but I think I arrive here with the same energy and the same enthusiasm that they arrive with so I think we’re still on a level playing field,” he told RadioNZ.

The Blues will be desperate to get their first victory behind them this weekend as they have made their worst ever start having lost three out of three.
