The Waratahs have named an unchanged line-up to take on the Lions in Saturday’s Super 14 clash at the Sydney Football Stadium.

The Waratahs are hoping to keep their perfect home record for 2008 intact and also gunning for their fourth win in a row to consolidate their position in the top four, according to a report on News24.

Skipper Phil Waugh will become the fourth-most capped Waratah in history when he makes his 95th appearance.

Prop Matt Dunning will join Nathan Grey in fifth on 94 caps, while Adam Freier will become the most capped Waratah hooker in Super Rugby with his 70th appearance.


Sam Norton-Knight, Lachie Turner, Rob Horne, Tom Carter, Lote Tuqiri, Kurtley Beale, Luke Burgess, Wycliff Palu, Phil Waugh (captain), Dean Mumm, Dan Vickerman, Will Caldwell, Matt Dunning, Tatafu Polota-Nau, Benn Robinson.

Reserves: Adam Freier, Al Baxter, David Lyons, Beau Robinson, Brett Sheehan, Matt Carraro, Alfi Mafi.

  • If the Lions win this one I’ll openly admit that Eddie Andrews never deserved to be a Bok.

    If the Lions lose, I’ll continue believing THE TRUTH: That he IS the greatest prop ever to wear a Bok jersey. :roll:
