Barnes doubtful for Sharks clash

The Waratahs are biting their nails over the fitness of influential flyhalf Berrick Barnes who has suffered yet another concussion, this time after a bump against the Lions. Barnes is a doubtful starter for the crunch game against the Sharks this weekend in Durban.

Barnes picked up a concussion against the Brumbies early in the season and was then ruled out for four weeks, but is said to be feeling much better than he did then. He has been included in the Waratahs squad that are making their way to South Africa for matches against the Sharks and Bulls.

Should Barnes not be able to play, this will result in a few changes and we will see either Daniel Halangahu or Kurtley Beale taking over the flyhalf reigns. It is more likely that Beale will be staying in the fullback slot, but one never knows, especially after the game Beale had against the Lions where he often slotted into first receiver.

Either way, the battle between the flyhalves will be a crucial battle against the Sharks, and with Luke Burgess in such great form in the scrumhalf position, it is going to be interesting to see how John Plumtree and his charges approach this.
