The Rebels play the Waratahs in a huge Super Rugby AU clash at the Leichhardt Oval on Saturday. The Waratahs must win to keep their playoff hopes alive but when things become tight I am backing the Rebels to have more quality.

Rebels Form


The Rebels certainly have the quality to challenge in Super Rugby AU but have largely underperformed in this season. They have won three, drawn one and lost two during this year’s competition but will be desperate to pip the Waratahs to the playoffs.

The Rebels showed their quality a few weeks ago, destroying table-toppers Brumbies 30-12 but fell 19-3 to the Reds in their last outing. The Rebels have struggled to string good performances together but they did enjoy a bye last weekend so should be fresh for this encounter.

Rebels News


Rebels star man Matt To’omua has been declared fit and will start at inside centre. Jermaine Ainsley makes his way into the front-row despite having an injury cloud hanging over his head. 

Reece Hodge will continue at full-back in the absence of Dane Haylett-Petty.

Waratahs Form


The Waratahs will be frustrated with their inconsistency this season but they still hold hopes of qualifying for the playoffs. To achieve that they must beat the Rebels this weekend in their final round robin fixture.

There seemed to be plenty of hope after the Waratahs destroyed the Reds 45-12 two weeks ago but a lackluster performance against the Brumbies last week has made this a must-win game. The Brumbies ran riot to win 38-11 in a match that was expected to be a tight affair.

Waratahs News


Waratahs head coach Rob Penney has selected former Rugby League star Tepai Moeroa at outside centre in the absence of Karmichael Hunt.

Rebels vs Waratahs Head to Head


The Waratahs hold a 9-3 advantage over the Rebels in their last 12 clashes. The Rebels have however won the last two and beat the Tahs’ 29-10 earlier in the Super Rugby AU campaign.

Rebels vs Waratahs Odds


The Rebels are slight favourites at 1.80 with the Waratahs priced at 2.05. A draw will pay 23.00.

The handicap for this match is set at 1 point.

Rebels vs Waratahs Match Up


The Rebels and Waratahs are in a straight shoot-out for the final playoff spot in Super Rugby AU so I expect a cracker. The Rebels have more quality around the park but with both sides showing tremendous inconsistency this season it really is anyone’s game.
