NSW Waratahs name squad ahead of Jaguares clash


24/05/2019





The NSW Waratahs have named an unchanged starting XV for their clash with the Jaguares at Bankwest Stadium in Round 15 of Vodafone Super Rugby.

Head Coach, Daryl Gibson has rewarded the players who got the job done against the Reds at Suncorp as his side pushes for a place in the finals.

The only changes come in the reserves, with Andrew Tuaula and Jed Holloway selected in place of Tolu Latu and Tom Staniforth.

Gibson acknowledged that the Jaguares – who have won five of their last six matches – would be a stern test for his side.

"We’ve got to keep performing and playing and coming out the right side with a result, we are in the fight for our lives in terms of staying alive in the competition and the conference,” Gibson said.

“This game is incredibly important and we need to pick our best side."

Kurtley Beale will notch his 140th NSW cap during Indigenous Round – taking him to third on the overall standings – while Bernard Foley moves to equal ninth on that list with his 118th appearance.

It’s a milestone night for Michael Wells at Bankwest, as the forward notches his 50th provincial game.
