Update: 3:30PM THE Blues have been forced to reshuffle their backline to face the Hurricanes after Ma'a Nonu was ruled out with injury.

The All Blacks' second five-eighth will not play against the Super Rugby franchise he earned 110 caps for after suffering tightness in his left calf.

Nonu had been battling the complaint this week and after a reassessment by Blues medical staff he was scratched from Friday night's match in Wellington.

Jackson Willison, who was originally left out of the 23 for the match, will start the match in his place.
