The Western Force make their return to Super Rugby when they travel to the Waratahs in Super Rugby AU at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Saturday. The Waratahs will fancy their chances in this encounter.

Waratahs Form & News


The Waratahs have been poor in 2020, with just one win, but this is a great chance for them to get their Super Rugby AU season on track.

Last week, the Waratahs lost 32-26 away at the Reds. While the performance still lacked the required quality, an improvement was evident.

The Waratahs' only victory of 2020 came in their clash with the Lions at the Bankwest Stadium. The match ended 29-17.

Dave Porecki has joined the Waratahs this week from London Irish, but is unavailable as he is currently in quarantine. Head coach Rob Penney is likely to change his squad up as he looks to bring as many players as possible back to match fitness.

Pekahou Cowan and Nick Frisby have both joined the Force for Super Rugby AU and will add experience to an otherwise inexperienced squad of players.
