Waratahs unchanged for Bulls




The Waratahs have retained the team that played the Cheetahs for this weekend’s Super Rugby match against the Bulls at Allianz Stadium on Saturday.

The Waratahs suffered no new injuries from their 21-6 victory over the Cheetahs so all players were available for selection.

Bernard Foley will become the Waratahs’ highest-ever Super Rugby-capped fly-half, surpassing previous record holder Daniel Halangahu. It is a huge testament to Foley’s commitment as he runs out for his 60th Super Rugby match in the number 10 jersey this Saturday.

Tatafu Polota-Nau will notch the second highest amount of games for NSW, running out for his 137th match for his home state this weekend, pipping Phil Waugh on 136 caps and behind Benn Robinson on 155.

Utility back, Matt Carraro is also set for a milestone, reaching his 50th Super Rugby cap this weekend, having played 45 games for the Waratahs and four for the Brumbies.

The Waratahs have won seven out of 10 matches when hosting the Bulls in Super Rugby, their last resulting in a 19-12 victory in 2014. Following last weekend’s success, the Waratahs currently sit in equal first place on top of the Australian conference, together with the Brumbies.

Jed Holloway is progressing well and has been flagged for an earlier-than-expected return after injuring his shoulder last Friday.
