The Waratahs tackle the Brumbies at the ANZ Stadium in Super Rugby AU on Saturday. The Brumbies have been excellent in 2020 and should be too strong for their hosts.

Waratahs Form & News


The Waratahs kicked off their Super Rugby AU campaign much like they ended Super Rugby 2020 before it was cancelled due to the coronavirus. They have secured just two wins in eight matches this year.

In the opening round of Super Rugby AU action, the Tahs went down 32-26 to the Reds at Suncorp Stadium. In their last match, they sealed a rusty 23-14 home win over a Western Force team that had not played in Super Rugby since 2017.

The Waratahs may look to freshen things up a bit this week in order to match the Brumbies physicality.  This could see lock Tom Staniforth come in after impressing off the bench last weekend.

Brumbies Form & News


The Brumbies have been very impressive in 2020, winning five of their six matches prior to the cancellation of Super Rugby 2020. That form was carried forward into Super Rugby AU when they defeated the Rebels 31-23 on the opening weekend at GIO Stadium.

Before Super Rugby was cancelled in March, the Brumbies looked in great shape to reach the play-offs and were playing rugby which their Australian counterparts would have been jealous of.

The Brumbies sealed a thumping 47-14 win over the Waratahs earlier in the year, so the handicap market appears to be worth looking into.

The Brumbies enjoyed a bye last week and should remain unchanged bar any late injuries in the lead  up.
