The Highlanders take on the Waratahs in Dunedin this morning, with a clash that could go any way, as we have seen so far this weekend, home and away count for nothing.

The Highlanders are unbeaten in their two matches so far this season, with a good win over the Crusaders last weekend having filled them with confidence.

The Waratahs come off a mixed bag of results and will hope that they can take from the win over the Rebels last weekend and push for a result here.

My predictions have largely been wayward this season, but I do think the Highlanders will win this game, but I am just guessing at this stage.

Highlanders: 15. Colin Slade, 14. Kade Poki, 13. Tamati Ellison, 12. Phil Burleigh, 11. Hosea Gear, 10. Lima Sopoaga, 9. Aaron Smith, 8. Nasi Manu, 7. John Hardie, 6. Adam Thomson, 5. Nick Crosswell, 4. Josh Bekhuis, 3. Chris King, 2. Andrew Hore, 1. Jamie MacKintosh (Captain)

Replacements: 16. Jason Rutledge, 17. Bronson Murray, 18. Culum Retallick, 19. James Haskell, 20. Jimmy Cowan, 21. Kurt Baker, 22. Buxton Popoalii

Waratahs: 15. Bernard Foley, 14. Tom Kingston, 13. Rob Horne, 12. Berrick Barnes, 11. Adam Ashley-Cooper, 10. Daniel Halangahu (Captain), 9. Sarel Pretorius, 8. Wycliff Palu, 7. Patrick McCutcheon, 6. Dave Dennis, 5. Kane Douglas, 4. Dean Mumm, 3. Sekope Kepu, 2. Tatafu Polota-Nau, 1. Benn Robinson

Replacements: 16. John Ulugia, 17. Paddy Ryan, 18. Lopeti Timani, 19. Chris Alcock, 20. Brendan McKibbin, 21. Tom Carter, 22. Brackin Karauria-Henry

  • @JarsonX (Comment 26) : After a heart stopping failed attempt to kick it out you should add! :mrgreen:

    This result will help my SB, but not enough to make a recovery I`m afraid.
