Game 2 for Round 3 and this competition just never lets up.

The two-from-two Tahs are up against the horrible Highlanders… although again this season they’re more unlucky than truly bad.

Will the Sydneysiders overcome the typical ‘Landers fast start to record a third win? Can they even win without Uncle Stu to look after them?

Or will the men from the South finally turn a close defeat into a much-needed win?

Kick-off in Sydney is at 10h40 SA time.

Teams:

Waratahs: 15 Sam Norton-Knight, 14 Lachie Turner, 13 Rob Horne, 12 Tom Carter, 11 Lote Tuqiri, 10 Kurtley Beale, 9 Luke Burgess, 8 Wycliff Palu, 7 Phil Waugh (captain), 6 Ben Mowen, 5 Will Caldwell,4 Dean Mumm, 3 Al Baxter 2 Adam Freier 1 Benn Robinson
Replacements: 1 Tatafu Polota-Nau, 17 Dan Palmer, 18 Chris Thomson, 19 Scott Fava, 20 Brett Sheehan, 21 Daniel Halangahu, 22 Timana Tahu.

Highlanders: 15 Israel Dagg, 14 Ben Smith, 13 Jason Shoemark (captain), 12 Johnny Leota, 11 Fetu’u Vainikolo, 10 Daniel Bowden, 9 Sean Romans, 8 Steven Setephano, 7 Alando Soakai, 6 Adam Thomson, 5 Hayden Triggs, 4 Josh Bekhuis, 3 Clint Newland, 2 David Hall, 1 Chris King.
Replacements: 16 Jason Rutledge, 17 Anthony Perenise, 18 George Naoupu, 19 Tim Boys, 20 Scott Cowan, 21 Mathew Berquist, 22 Kendrick Lynn.

Referee: James Leckie

  • A rugby tradition that became endangered in the professional era has made a comeback in the Super 14.

    While post-match functions are largely a thing of the past, there are measures in place this year to ensure that opposing teams share a drink and chat a bit after doing battle.

    Former All Black fullback Shane Howarth, who now works as assistant coach of the Blues, on Thursday unveiled the attempts at bringing back the sense of camaraderie from the amateur era into the current day professional environment.

    “It was suggested by coaches at a Super 14 conference in December. The home team welcomes the visitors with a beer in their change room after the game,” said Howarth.

    “We encourage players to seek out their direct opponent, have a beer with him and chat a little. As coaches we do the same. Last week I enjoyed chatting with Pieter Rossouw (assistant coach of the Bulls).

    “It’s wonderful that this tradition is coming back and I think it’s very important. We must hold onto it.

    “We did it in our first two games and will do it again after Saturday’s match against the Stormers.”
