The Waratahs are again at home this week and they face the Blues who are currently 11th on the log but we all know they are better than being 11th. Last week they impressed against the Brumbies so the question is can they do it again.


Linston Manuels is the referee who made the shocking decision in last weeks Bulls v Hurricanes match and he is on the sideline this week.
