    The Waratahs are Australia’s only hope in the eight teams contesting in the Super Rugby finals. Will they bounce back from last week’s loss to the Brumbies to progress through or will the Highlanders knock Daryl Gibson’s men out of the playoffs?

    This is The Roar’s guide to streaming the match online and watching it on TV.

    The Waratahs were out-enthused in their last-start defeat to the Brumbies.

    While the 40-31 loss was disappointing, the New South Welshmen can take confidence out of the fact that they belted the Highlanders 41-12 in their last meeting with the New Zealand-based side.

    Meanwhile, the Highlanders denied the Rebels their first-ever finals appearance after a 43-37 comeback win.

    The match will be played at Allianz Stadium on Saturday, July 21 at 8.05pm (AEST).

      Not sure about the Foxtel pricing here… HD perhaps? Basic SD Sport is $29/month plus $10/month for one of the base packages. Cancel when the finals are over …

        What a peculiar comment given most people’s TV’s are now 55 inch or larger.
        Standard definition is a piss-weak excuse for an ethically-challenged corporation to jack the price on an already overpriced service.

          Size matter eh Rebellion? I have Foxtel over the copper network at home and only need to watch SR in SD on my 55″ UHD TV. I ALso have Foxtel Now over NBN and am considering dropping the former in favour of the flexibility and cost savings of the latter. My point was merely that I didn’t understand where the $55/mo figure came from as if you check pricing on the Foxtel Now site, I can’t see how anyone got to that number. Still if you want to pick holes in the comment about size, that’s up to you.
