The 2014 Super Rugby Champions have lost two matches at home and their only victories have come against the struggling Reds.

Two weeks ago the Waratahs allowed the Highlanders to race to a 30 point lead in the first half and scored 26 unanswered points.

Against the Rebels the Waratahs performed similarly as at half time the Rebels were leading 3-21 and the Melbourne side were kept scoreless while the Waratahs put on 14 unanswered points.

“It’s the same mistakes each week, slow starts and come back strongly and we haven’t rolled into any games with some flair and attacking how we want to do,” said a puzzled Hooper.

“It’s going to be tough to work it out, we’ve been trying for five or six weeks now so it’s back to the drawing board and looking how we can get on the front foot early.”
