The Blues secured their fourth straight win at home in Auckland when they beat the Waratahs 21-13 at Eden Park on Friday.
The result moves the Blues up from 11th place in the standings to 8th while the Waratahs remained in fourth place.
The victory is the Blues fourth from nine matches this season and moved them above the Highlanders in the New Zealand conference. The Highlanders are on tour in South Africa so the Blues are likely to remain above the Dunedin based franchise this week.
