S14 ’09 Game 37 – Waratahs (13) v Crusaders (17) F/T

The Crusaders travel to Sydney to try and prevent this being their worst ever S14 string of matches.

The Crusaders’ worst ever record for successive matches is three losses and a draw. That was back in 1996 and were the results in the first four rounds of Superrugby for the Crusaders. They are currently equal with that record after losing in rounds 2,3 & 4 and drawing in round 5 this season. A loss today could signal the lifting of the cover over the panic button.

The Waratahs on the other hand will want to show that the slip against fellow countrymen last week was just that, a slip and nothing more.

Will we have a dubious new record for the Crusaders? I think so.

Venue: ANZ Stadium, Sydney
Kick-off: 19:40 Local Time, 10:40 SA Time

Referee: Chris Pollock (New Zealand)
ARs: James Leckie (Australia), Andrew Lees (Australia)
TMO: George Ayoub (Australia)

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 Dean Mumm, 5 Will Caldwell, 4 Chris Thomson, 3 Al Baxter, 2 Tatafu Polota-Nau, 1 Benn Robinson.
Replacements:
16 Damien Fitzpatrick, 17 Dan Palmer, 18 Luke Doherty, 19 Ben Mowen, 20 Brett Sheehan, 21 Daniel Halangahu, 22 Timana Tahu.

Crusaders:
15 Leon MacDonald, 14 Adam Whitelock, 13 Tim Bateman, 12 Ryan Crotty, 11 Colin Slade, 10 Stephen Brett, 9 Andrew Ellis, 8 Thomas Waldrom, 7 George Whitelock, 6 Kieran Read (captain), 5 Isaac Ross, 4 Brad Thorn, 3 Bronson Murray, 2 Jason Macdonald, 1 Wyatt Crockett.
Replacements:
16 Daniel Perrin, 17 Owen Franks, 18 Michael Paterson, 19 Nasi Manu, 20 Kahn Fotuali’i, 21 Hamish Gard, 22 Blair Cook.

  • I have a feeling we are about to see the worst ever run by the crusaders be extended.
