After much anticipation and excitement, Tah Man, the first ever mascot of the HSBC Waratahs, has been unveiled atop Sydney Tower SkyWalk.

Sponsored by Visy, Tah Man will become a permanent fixture on the Rugby circuit, encouraging Waratahs fans to be ‘Tah’d for Life’, helping supporters cheer on the Waratahs at home games, as well as making public and school appearances throughout the year.

‘I’ve always been there, keeping an ever-watchful on the Tahs through good times and bad, and finally the time has come to reveal myself to the Rugby world,’ said Tah Man.

‘Brock [David Brockhoff] put out the call that the Tahs needed something extra, something special in season 2008. That something extra, is Tah Man.’

‘I will ensure the message of the Tahs continues to grow, that support is louder and stronger and that the Sydney Football Stbmooreadium turns into a fortress on game day. Nothing ‘ NOTHING, will stop Tah Man.

Tah Man will also play an important role as an environmental crusader ‘ encouraging fans of all ages to recycle at every opportunity.

‘We’re proud to have Tah Man and the HSBC Waratahs on our team as environmental crusaders,’ said Steve Boland, Visy Recycling Divisional General Manager.
