Waratahs head coach Daryl Gibson has named Bryce Hegarty at flyhalf for their second round Super Rugby clash against the Lions in Johannesburg on Saturday.

Hegarty retains the starting flyhalf place as Bernard Foley recovers from the head knock sustained in the pre-season game.

Speaking from Johannesburg, Gibson is hoping for a dry track this weekend so his side can get back to playing the style of rugby they enjoy.

“The Lions are a strong team and we’re expecting them to be formidable at home,” said Gibson.

“The team had some frustrations with our game last weekend when we sat down to review the game.  We know the areas we want to work on coming out of last weekend and just looking forward to playing in front of what we know will be an enthusiastic crowd,” he said.
