Waratahs Super rugby head coach Daryl Gibson has named a largely unchanged line up for Friday’s match with the Melbourne Rebels.

Karmichael Hunt is the major omission through injury, after the centre went down in the opening minutes last week against the Jaguares. Hunt will be replaced by Lalakai Foketi, following an impressive performance off the bench against the Argentinians.
