The Waratahs return from a bye last weekend and will be desperate for the victory to stay within touching distance of those ahead of them.

The Tahs’ opened their Super Rugby AU campaign with a 32-26 away loss to the Reds before beating the Western Force 23-14 at home. Perhaps their best performance came a week later when they lost 24-23 to the Brumbies at home.
