Planet Rugby reports the Waratahs will be without skipper Phil Waugh when they face the Blues on Saturday as the flanker continues his recovery from a calf injury.

It was initially hoped that Waugh would be fit to play this weekend having missed his team’s clash with the Force last time out, but he has not recovered in time to do so.

“Phil is still not quite right with that calf muscle, so he’s going to be out this week as well,” said Waratahs coach Chris Hickey.

“We thought it would have been a lot better by today.

“If he played it would be still a significant risk of developing into a tear and that becomes then a five or six week injury.”

Waugh will be joined on the sidelines by winger Atieli Pakalani who suffered a hamstring injury in the game against the Force.

“He will be very disappointed at not being able to play against the Blues, coming from Auckland,” said Hickey

“But we’ve got to look at some long term decisions for him as well and get that injury right.”

Tom Carter is in doubt for the contest with a hamstring injuring forcing the centre out of training until Thursday

  • We’re getting to the stage of the season when Troy Flav…I mean Keven Mealamu’s men start to fade. Lets hope the Blues can sustain their challenge this year. There’s still 1 rival SA team we’d like them to cut down in week 14 apart from doing us favours against the Tahs and Reds.
