Waratahs captain Dave Dennis has declared himself fit to face the Brumbies this weekend after missing the Super Rugby clash against the Reds before their bye.

Dennis missed the match in Sydney against the Queenslanders due to a knee injury that he sustained playing against the Western Force in the opening round.

The Waratahs had a bye last week so after having the week off Dennis says that he feels good enough to play in Canberra.

"I'm 100 per cent ready for the Brumbies," Dennis told AAP.

"It was just a bit of bone bruising and I could have played against the Reds, not that they needed me. But we thought it was better just to wait another week.

"The knee is fine. It's feeling good and I'm looking forward to getting back into it all."

The Waratahs lost 35-6 on their last visit to Canberra in March last year so they will be looking to make up for that loss.

Dennis said that he was confident that the Waratahs bye last week would not impact on the Waratahs form which has seen them beat the Force 43-21 and the Reds 32-5.

"That's our challenge for the year. Traditionally we have struggled with our consistency," Dennis said.

"The boys are in a good headspace and there is a sense we want to get on the field this afternoon, we want to get into training, we want to get through the week and play as quickly as possible because everyone is really enjoying playing with each other.

"Although we had an early bye it can't affect our momentum that much.

"We are really happy with the way we have started. There is a lot of drive there."
