Anyone can contribute to The Roar and have their work featured alongside some of Australia’s most prominent sports journalists.
The Waratahs (NSW) were founded in 1882 and are one of 12 original sides that competed in the Super 12 competition in 1996, directed by SANZAR. Their rivalries with the Brumbies and Queensland Reds are regarded as some of the most storied in Super Rugby. In 2014, the Waratahs won their first Super Rugby title defeating Canterbury Crusaders 33-32 at ANZ Stadium.
The Waratahs endured a rough campaign in 2017, losing all but four of their games in what proved to be a woeful year for all of Australian rugby. They finished above the hapless Rebels, but were forced to settle behind their rival Reds on bonus points.
