Blues lock Patrick Tuipulotu will miss the Super Rugby finals series with injury although his broken arm is not likely to affect his All Blacks availability.

Blues coach Leon MacDonald revealed on Monday the 43-test All Black will be sidelined for about six weeks by the injury, which he suffered during Friday’s win over the Highlanders at Eden Park.

It means the 30-year-old will miss Friday’s quarter-final at home . . .
