Cape Town - The Sunwolves return from a bye and will be looking to ignite their season when they host the Waratahs at Prince Chichibu Memorial Stadium.
Kick-off is at 07:15 SA time.
Last time out they were thumped 61-10 by the Chiefs in what was their fifth defeat from their opening five games in the Super Rugby season.
Head coach Jamie Joseph has made three changes to his backline for this week's game as Kotaro Matsushima, Lomano Lemeki and Yutaka Nagare all come into the side.
They replace Ryuji Noguchi, Hosea Saumaki and Fumiaki Tanaka at fullback, left wing and scrumhalf respectively.
Up front Craig Millar and Jiwon Koo are the two new props, James Moore and Sam Wykes come in at lock while there's also a new backrow as Yoshitaka Tokunaga and Lappies Labuschagne are named on the flanks while Kazuki Himeno gets the nod at eight. Michael Leitch is injured.
