Cape Town - Waratahs head coach Daryl Gibson has made one change to his starting XV for this weekend’s Super Rugby clash with the Jaguares.
Alex Newsome replaces Andrew Kellaway on the right wing while on the bench, hooker Tolu Latu comes in for Hugh Roach, scrumhalf Nick Duffy replaces the injured Mitchell Short and Taqele Naiyaravoro is set for his first game of the season.
“We have selected a team that is competitive in all areas, particularly in the forwards where we are continuing to improve. This weekend’s game is about continuing the momentum that we have built up over the last two games and finishing a challenging couple of weeks on a positive note,” Gibson said.
