Super Rugby 2012 – Rebels (19) vs Waratahs (35) F/T

The Rebels start their Super Rugby campaign after having their bye last weekend, and face the Waratahs who come off a last minute loss to the Reds.

The Rebels have James O’Connor making his debut for the Melbourne based team, with Kurtley Beale having to wait until later in the campaign to make his debut. Having not seen anything from the Rebels thus far, it is impossible to speculate exactly how good they will be.

The Waratahs came out firing last week, leading the Reds through most of the second half before the Reds scraped home, and should come out firing again this weekend, looking for that first win. Halangahu continues at pivot as captain, with Adam Ashley-Cooper shifting from fullback to wing, to make space for Aussie Sevens star Bernard Foley.

I expect a bit of a scrappy match, with the Rebels making all the mistakes and silly errors that every other team had the chance to make last weekend.

Rebels: 15. Mark Gerrard, 14. Lachlan Mitchell, 13. Mitch Inman, 12. James O`Connor, 11. Cooper Vuna, 10. Daniel Cipriani, 9. Nick Phipps, 8. Gareth Delve, 7. Tom Chamberlain, 6. Luke Jones, 5. Hugh Pyle, 4. Adam Byrnes, 3. Laurie Weeks, 2. Adam Freier, 1. Nic Henderson

Replacements: 16. Luke Holmes, 17. Rodney Blake, 18. Alister Campbell, 19. Jarrod Saffy, 20. Richard Kingi, 21. Lloyd Johansson, 22. Julian Huxley

Waratahs: 15. Bernard Foley, 14. Tom Kingston, 13. Rob Horne, 12. Tom Carter, 11. Adam Ashley-Cooper, 10. Daniel Halangahu (Captain), 9. Sarel Pretorius, 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

Replacements: 16. Damian Fitzpatrick, 17. Paddy Ryan, 18. Lopeti Timani, 19. Jono Jenkins, 20. Brendan McKibbin, 21. Brackin Karauria-Henry, 22. Nathan Trist

  • The only Aussie team that’ll make play-offs are probably the Reds,the rest will probably get some whoopings from their South African and New Zealand counterparts
