All Blacks hardman Jerome Kaino steamrolled the ACT Brumbies and almost torpedoed their finals hopes, but he’s vowed to do everything in his power to fire the next shot at the NSW Waratahs next weekend.

The Auckland Blues are the unlikely villains who can transform into Canberra heroes if they beat the Waratahs in New Zealand on Friday night.

They smashed and bashed the Brumbies on their way to a 40-15 win at Eden Park on Friday night ago to blast open the Australian conference battle for a guaranteed finals berth.

The Tana Umaga-led Blues are out of play-off contention, but they’ve got a vital role to play when it comes to the Brumbies’ title dreams.

Regardless of the Waratahs’ result against the Wellington Hurricanes on Saturday night, Australia’s top spot will hinge on the Blues-Waratahs clash before the Brumbies play the Western Force at Canberra Stadium.

Kaino, who scored a double against the Brumbies, vowed to leave nothing in the tank as the Blues continue their mission to restore pride at the club ahead of the arrival of Sonny Bill Williams next year.

“We’ll do our best [to help the Brumbies], I get along with a lot of guys in the Brumbies and the Waratahs,” Kaino told Fairfax Media.

“But for 80 minutes there’s no friendships. We’ll be at home next week and we’ll treat it the same … we’re not playing for the play-offs but we’ve got a lot of pride at stake.

“We definitely won’t be lying down for the Waratahs. The Brumbies have won their fair share of our battles, so we’re happy to take this one. The Brumbies are a class outfit.”

The Blues have earned a reputation as the Brumbies’ bogey team in recent seasons, knocking them out of finals contention in 2012 and beating them last year to almost end their play-off hopes.

The Blues have won seven games this year in another frustrating season that will see them just out of finals contention.

But All Blacks great Umaga says that won’t be a factor when they clash against the Waratahs and try to bury another team at an Australian rugby cemetery.

The Wallabies haven’t won at Eden Park since 1986 and Australian Super Rugby teams have only won six of 34 games at the Auckland venue since 1996.

“We hope we’ve got [enough in the tank for the Waratahs], we take a lot of confidence out of [beating the Brumbies],” Umaga said.

“We need to reset and we’ll enjoy [beating the Brumbies] but we need to get back on the horse.

“There are some players in the Brumbies side who haven’t had a break [after the Wallabies Test series], it’s got to be tough.”

Kaino was sent to the sin bin for pulling down a rampaging Brumbies maul in the first half, conceding it was a cynical play in a bid to save a try.

The Blues adopted a stand-off tactic at lineouts to avoid a battle of muscle in the rolling maul contest.

It’s a tactic that some deem as not in the spirit of the game while others say the rugby law loophole is there to exploit.

“We knew the Brumbies were a strong mauling team … it was a bit cynical from me but that’s the threat they pose,” Kaino said.

“In the end we needed to fight fire with fire and they showed their class. The Waratahs might use that as well so we’ll see how we can counter it.”

Brumbies coach Stephen Larkham hoped World Rugby lawmakers would clarify the loophole at the end of the season.

“We had a stand-off in one of the mauls … In my mind rugby has technical elements in the game and the maul is an important part of that,” Larkham said.

“We’ve been pushing for a while to make sure they clarify that. There’s an enormous amount of skill in setting up a good maul and stopping one, it’s the technical element of rugby.

“We’ve always been innovative in the way we look at laws, and if the law is there to be broken it will be broken until it’s fixed. One year we used witches hats for kick-offs, and that quickly got banned.”
