NSW Waratahs name team for round six


21/03/2019



By NSW Rugby Media

The NSW Waratahs return to the SCG on Saturday night to take on reigning Super Rugby champions Crusaders in round six of the Vodafone Super Rugby.

Head Coach Daryl Gibson has named two changes to his starting XV in Nick Phipps and Cam Clark. Phipps made his 2019 Super Rugby return off the bench last weekend after missing the first three games due to a calf injury, with Clark this week getting his start on the right wing.

Karmichael Hunt returns to the squad on the bench, after suffering a hamstring strain which ruled him out of the Brumbies last weekend.

Also returning to the 23-man squad is Michael Wells, who recently arrived back in Australia after competing on the international circuit with the Australian Men’s squad.

In line to potentially make his debut for the NSW Waratahs is Newcastle’s Andrew Tuala, who joined the squad this year and has formed part of the two recent NSW Emerging Waratahs teams.

The NSW Waratahs will take on the Crusaders, Saturday 23 March at 7:45pm, with gates opening at 6:00pm. Tickets can be purchased at www.nswwaratahs.com.au/tickets.

The teams will observe a moments silence ahead of kick off out of respect to those who lost their lives in the recent Christchurch tragedies
