S15 Game 43 – Waratahs (23) v Chiefs (16) F/T


Written by Richard Ferguson (Richard Ferguson)

The high flying Waratahs take on the slow starting Chiefs in another Aus v NZ battle this morning. The Waratahs come off a win over the Brumbies and the Chiefs come off a loss to the Blues.

The Chiefs desperately need a win to boost their log standing after yet another poor start to the season, something their fans have become used to. The Waraths will want to continue their strong start to the season, with a loss to the Cheetahs the only real blip on their season so far.

I expect a rather one sided affair for this game with the Waratahs running away with this.

Waratahs: 15. Lachlan Turner, 14. Afa Pakalani, 13. Ryan Cross, 12. Tom Carter, 11. Drew Mitchell, 10. Kurtley Beale, 9. Luke Burgess, 8. Wycliff Palu, 7. Phil Waugh (Captain), 6. Ben Mowen, 5. Pat O`Connor, 4. Dean Mumm, 3. Sekope Kepu, 2. Tatafu Polota-Nau, 1. Benn Robinson

Replacements: 16. Damian Fitzpatrick, 17. Paddy Ryan, 18. Sitaleki Timani, 19. Dave Dennis, 20. Patrick McCutcheon, 21. Brendan McKibbin, 22. Daniel Halangahu

Chiefs: 15. Tim Nanai-Williams, 14. Lelia Masaga, 13. Richard Kahui, 12. Dwayne Sweeney, 11. Sitiveni Sivivatu, 10. Mike Delany, 9. Brendon Leonard, 8. Liam Messam (Captain), 7. Tanerau Latimer, 6. Scott Waldrom, 5. Isaac Ross, 4. Craig Clarke, 3. Nathan White, 2. Hikawera Elliott, 1. Toby Smith

Replacements: 16. Aled De Malmanche, 17. Sona Taumalolo, 18. Culum Retallick, 19. Fritz Lee, 20. Tawera Kerr-Barlow, 21. Tana Umaga, 22. Savenaca Tokula

  • Waratahs playing in some ‘interesting’ jerseys.

    For a good cause though. To be auctioned off to raise funds for the spastic society (commentator’s words).
