This Saturday from 6.15 (Argentine time), Waratahs and Brumbies will face each other for the third date of Super Rugby Australia, in a duel that promises a good game and can be enjoyed live on ESPN Play.
Local head coach Rob Penney announced a change from the team that beat Western Force 23-14 last date.
The pillar Tom Robertson, who is already recovered from an injury and received a medical discharge, will once again be among the headlines and take the place of Tiaan Tauakipulu. On the other hand, Karmichael Hunt and Jack Dempsey will be back in the game, which means added value for the cast that Penney leads in terms of experience.
On the side of the substitutes, the Sydney team will have, no less, than several players who were members of the selected M20 of the Wallabies: Will Harris, Angus Bell, Ben Donaldson and Michael McDonald on the bench.
Waratahs: 15 Jack Maddocks, 14 James Ramm, 13 Joey Walton, 12 Karmichael Hunt, 11 Alex Newsome, 10 Will Harrison, 9 Mitch Short, 8 Jack Dempsey, 7 Michael Hooper, 6 Lachlan Swinton, 5 Rob Simmons (c), 4 Ned Hanigan , 3 Harry Johnson-Holmes, 2 Tom Horton, 1 Tom Robertson.
