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).
