Waratahs versus Brumbies: Forwards give the Tahs the edge

2 days ago

With their home ground advantage the Waratahs must start as favourites for Saturday’s semi-final against the Brumbies, and by finishing top of the table the Tahs have a great opportunity to go all the way with a home final.

3 days ago

The Waratahs game plan over the last two seasons has been built on an attacking mindset – keep the ball in hand and play – and as a result they’ve become the most exciting team in Super Rugby. Just two years ago their home crowd was booing them, particularly when they kicked for territory. In […]

The Reds and Waratahs first played each other in 1882. There’s a bitter rivalry between the two teams. Between 2004 and 2009 the Reds endured plenty of dark days in the Super Rugby competition, finishing no better than 10th when the competition featured 12 teams and 12th when the competition featured 14 teams. Prior to […]

3D Analysis: Waratahs show structure in attack creates opportunities

9 Jul 2014
