The Waratahs host the Force in the second derby of the day, needing a much improved performance from the men in light blue to start climbing the log ladder. The Force have not won a match so far, and will want to make an impression against their fellow countrymen.

The Waratahs have had their fair share of injury concerns early in the season, and it is clear from their depleted bench that this is hurting them. They will, however, target this match as a must win and get their campaign back on track.

The Force have struggled in the early games, and I suspect they will struggle for the rest of the season as their squad looks rather thin and the players just seem directionless. David Pocock will have to stand tall if this team is to come close.

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. Tevita Metuisela, 7. Jono Jenkins, 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. Sitaleki Timani, 19. Lopeti Timani, 20. Chris Alcock, 21. Brendan McKibbin, 22. Tom Carter

Force:15. David Harvey ,14. Samu Wara, 13. Will Tupou, 12. Rory Sidey,11. Alfie Mafi,10. James Stannard,9. Brett Sheehan,8. Matt Hodgson,7. David Pocock (Captain),6. Angus Cottrell,5. Nathan Sharpe, 4. Sam Wykes,3. Salesi Ma’afu , 2. Nathan Charles, 1. Pek Cowan

Replacements: 16. Ben Whittaker, 17. Kieran Longbottom, 18. Phoenix Battye, 19. Richard Brown, 20. Justin Turner, 21. Ben Seymour, 22. Winston Stanley.
