The embattled NSW Waratahs are continuing their High Veld safari in the Big Smoke: Joburg. The Lions await, with an iconoclastic pack full of wily characters: the manic Malcolm Marx, the bantamweight Kwagga Smith, inspirational skipper Warren Whiteley, and a couple of nasty locks. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog, starting from 11:05pm AEST.

The Waratahs have a very similar mix of mobile forwards. Ned Hanigan did well at No.8 last week against a world-class Thor. But he switches back to NO.6. As an 80 minute man, he will need all his oxygen, as Kwagga and reserve Marnus Schoeman and fleet-footed Whiteley attack on the edges.

In the outside backs, the Waratahs are at a bit of a speed disadvantage, with Lion scorchers all over the park. But this will be an intriguing matchup between two half-pairings their respective nations love to nitpick: Nard-Nic vs Elton-Crab. Elton Jantjies usually delivers at home, however. Edge: Lions.

Wildcards: Rob Simmons on Marx’s wobblers. Kurtley Beale’s boot. Aphiwe Dyantyi and Courtnall Skosan in space.

Prediction
Lions by about 10, I think.
