The Waratahs tackle the Reds in a huge Super Rugby AU encounter at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Saturday. The Reds are eyeing second place and will be well up for the challenge having beaten the Waratahs twice this year already.

Waratahs Form & News


The Waratahs will be refreshed after their bye weekend. They are not completely out of the competition, but they need a win in this one.

The Tahs kicked off their Super Rugby AU season with a 32-26 defeat at the Reds before beating the Western Force 23-14 on home soil. Interestingly, their most complete performance came in the 24-23 defeat to the Brumbies a week later at home.

In their previous fixture, the Waratahs were handed a 29-10 lesson by the Rebels.

The Waratahs have a fully fit squad from which to pick. They should all be well rested after having a bye last weekend.

Reds Form & News


The Reds lost their first Super Rugby AU match last weekend, with the Brumbies winning 22-20. It was looking good for the Reds heading towards full-time, but a late Brumbies penalty crushed their hopes and dreams.

The Reds still occupy second on the log and will be eager to consolidate that position with a victory this weekend. They defeated the Waratahs at home 32-26 in the opening round of Super Rugby AU before they drew 18-18 against the Rebels. They have also beaten the Western Force 31-24 at home.

The Reds won’t make too many changes but Jordan Petaia could make his first start in the competition at centre. There is also talk of Tate McDermott coming in at scrum-half ahead of Scott Malolua.
