Waratahs Super rugby head coach Rob Penney has named a team with two changes to the starting line up to take on the Lions as the Sydney side play at Bankwest Stadium for the first time in 2020.
Last week the Waratahs had a bye and are still looking for their first victory of the 2020 Super rugby season.
There are only two changes to the starting XV that went down to the Rebels, with Lachlan Swinton replacing Jed Holloway in the back row and Mark Nawaqanitawase returning to the wing.
James Ramm joins the bench in place of Cameron Clark courtesy of some standout performances for the Emerging Waratahs in recent weeks.
Jake Gordon will earn his 50th cap for his home state, while Kurtley Beale will become the most capped player in this fixture.
