The Blues have snatched the Brisbane Global Tens title after defeating the Hurricanes 10-7 in the final last night.

The men from Auckland concluded the final with a try after the full-time siren from the hand of George Moala as the Blues were trailing 7-0 to Hurricanes at halftime.

Without a Super Rugby playoff appearance since 2011, the Blues gave their confidence another injection as the Super Rugby season draws closer.

The Hurricanes lone try was scored by prop Alex Fidow in the fifth minute of the first half.
