The Waratahs team to face the Stormers this weekend has been announced, with a few minor tweaks to the decision makers in the team, with both Sarel Pretorius and Daniel Halangahu dropping to the bench.
Pretorius is replaced by Brendan McKibbin, who has been in sensational form with the boot, while a fit again Bernard Foley replaces Halangahu at the back. Foley was one of the form backline players for the Waratahs before he got injured.
Hooker Tatafu Polota-Nau suffered a concussion two weeks ago and is being monitored, while it is expected that he will play some part in this game.
Adam Ashley-Cooper continues in midfield alongside Rob Horne, with Tom Carter not getting a spot in the match 22. The Waratahs are hoping to see the return of Drew Mitchell next weekend, when they face the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein.
