Australian derby, what more can I say?

The Waratahs scraped past the Force last weekend, in another of these snooze-fests, and at home will want to take at least four points from this match. This would put them in at least second spot on the Australian conference, and if they can knock over their equally bad Aussie teams a few times, could really shoot up the log.

The Rebels have been up and down, with their star studded backline only firing when they really want. Kurtley Beale faces his old team mates for the first time, which should make things that 1% more interesting.

I would still rather go stand in a bank or something.

Waratahs: 15. Bernard Foley, 14. Tom Kingston, 13. Rob Horne, 12. Tom Carter, 11. Adam Ashley-Cooper, 10. Berrick Barnes, 9. Brendan McKibbin, 8. Wycliff Palu, 7. Chris Alcock, 6. Dave Dennis, 5. Kane Douglas, 4. Dean Mumm, 3. Sekope Kepu, 2. Tatafu Polota-Nau, 1. Benn Robinson.
