A strong crowd is expected tonight at the Sydney Football Stadium when the HSBC Waratahs take on the Crusaders in the 3rd Annual Rotomahana Challenge.

The Waratahs have a number of changes to the side which was announced earlier this week, with lock Will Caldwell coming into the starting XV for Dean Mumm who has the flu.

Two more HSBC Junior Waratahs now get their chance in tonight’s match, with Chris Thomson taking Caldwell’s place on the bench, while Australian Under-19 prop Dan Palmer comes in for Jeremy Tilse who sustained a fractured finger at training.

The match is due to get underway at 7.40pm with gates opening at the Sydney Football Stadium at 6:00pm.
