The last game of the weekend, and an unusual Sunday match, has us go for an early morning match in Australia, where the Waratahs host the Crusaders.

The Waratahs are yet to announce their team for the clash, with a squad chosen, as injuries will be assessed in the build up to the game. The Waratahs come off a win over the Rebels last weekend, which was a bore fest of an Australian derby match, and we are likely to see some better action in this match.

The Crusaders comprehensively outplayed the Hurricanes last weekend, running in four tries before half time, and I am afraid to say the Crusaders team of old is back. They will target this match, even though an away match, as a four pointer, as they climb the log after a poor start to the season.

Waratahs squad : Adam Ashley-Cooper , Berrick Barnes ,Peter Betham , Dave Dennis , Kane Douglas ,Tom Carter ,Rocky Elsom , Tom Kingston , Daniel Halangahu ,Jono Jenkins ,Sekope Kepu , Brendan McKibbin , Dean Mumm ,Atieli Pakalani ,Wycliff Palu ,Tatafu Polota-Nau ,Sarel Pretorius ,Benn Robinson , Jeremy Tilse,Lopeti Timani , Sitaleki Timani , John Ulugia

Crusaders: 1. Ben Franks 2. Corey Flynn 3. Owen Franks 4. Tom Donnelly 5. Luke Romano 6. George Whitelock 7. Matt Todd 8. Kieran Read 9. Andy Ellis 10. Tom Taylor 11. Zac Guildford 12. Dan Carter 13. Robbie Fruean 14. Adam Whitelock, 15. Israel Dagg

Reserves: 16. Ben Funnell 17. Wyatt Crockett 18. Samuel Whitelock 19. Richie McCaw 20. Willi Heinz 21. Ryan Crotty 22. Tom Marshall

Referee: Jonathan Kaplan
Assistant Ref 1:Craig Joubert
Assistant Ref 2:Andrew Lees
TMO: George Ayoub

  • Tom Carter cost his team 14 points by missing two tackles on Fruean, which resulted in two converted tries!
