Any aspirations of finals rugby might be gone, but the much-maligned Waratahs still have plenty to play for when they begin their South African tour against the Stormers tonight. We’ll have live scores from 3.10am AEST.
Rugby can be a cruel game at times, and the Waratahs certainly found that out last week.
With only minutes left on the clock, Michael Foley’s men looked set to register a well-deserved victory in front of their home crowd agains the Bulls.
That was, until Werner Kruger was shunted over the line for the visitors, ending any chances the Waratahs had of a late-season surge into the finals.
Thankfully they travel to Cape Town with no fresh injuries, and the tour represents an opportunity for the Waratahs to start again and build toward a more successful 2013 campaign.
But it won’t come easy tonight when they face up against the Stormers, who come into this one on a three-match winning run.
Granted, they might not be lighting up the scoreboard like the Bulls are but they’re continuing to get the job done despite having one of the longest injury lists in the competition.
Form wouldn’t suggest it but the Waratahs have a genuine chance of winning this game – if they approach it with the right attitude.
Should they be freed from the negative, unimaginative tactics that have plagued them throughout the year now that the pressure is off, we could see a different side.
