The Blues are currently 15th on the overall rankings after picking up just one victory from their opening eight matches and have a total of 12 points.
The Reds are only doing slightly better in 10th spot with 21 points after picking up four victories and four defeats so far.
The Blues are a part of the New Zealand Conference and are obviously bottom of those rankings as well, while the Reds are currently third in the Australian Conference.
New Zealand international prop forward Tony Woodcock will sit out this encounter after picking up a calf injury in training this week and he will be replaced by Tevita Mailau.
Luke Braid will once again lead the team out as captain in the absence of the injured Keven Mealamu, while Rudi Wulf is back after recovering from a shoulder problem.
Digby Ioane will play his 50th game for the Reds as he returns from suspension, while centre Anthony Faingaare has recovered from a foot injury.
The Blues are seen as favourites and can be backed at $1.45 with Luxbet, while the Reds are on offer at 2.80.
