Hurricanes coaches Mark Hammett and Alama Ieremia have named an unchanged team to the one that beat the Rebels 66-24 last week for this weekend's clash against the Waratahs in Sydney.
Hammett was reluctant to make changes after the Hurricanes delivered arguably their best performance of the season against the Rebels who two weeks earlier had beaten the Crusaders.
The Waratahs and Hurricanes last played each other in 2010 as the Tahs were the only Australian team the Hurricanes didnít play last year under the new conference format.
The Hurricanes will fancy their chances against the Waratahs as they have lost five matches in a row including their tour matches against the Stormers and Cheetahs in South Africa.
