No Folau for Durban

The Waratahs have been forced to name a side for Saturday’s clash in the Shark tank that doesn’t include leading try scorer Israel Folau at fullback; the former league player who has been one of the Super Rugby tournament’s form men in these early rounds has had to stay behind in Sydney due to a blow to the throat he took against the Rebels.

Coach Michael Cheika will be a confident man all the same – he has managed to retain the key attacking axis of Bernard Foley and Kurtley Beale at 10-12 for this top of the table clash and will relish the opportunity to see his men in action against what is now sure to be a disrupted Sharks inside back division.

Former Reds player Jonno Lance comes in for his first Waratahs start at fullback, with Rob Horne replacing Alofa Alofa at left wing in the only other change to the starting back division.

Cheika has shuffled the deck a little up front too, moving Jacques Potgieter into the second row (from flank) and Dave Dennis onto the blindside from number 8. Wycliff Palu steps into the number 8 jersey, while Benn Robinson rotates with Paddy Ryan and will start at loosehead prop.

Cheika is yet to confirm his bench.

Waratahs: 15 Jonno Lance, 14 Rob Horne, 13 Adam Ashley-Cooper, 12 Kurtley Beale, 11 Peter Betham, 10 Bernard Foley, 9 Nick Phipps, 8 Wycliff Palu, 7 Michael Hooper, 6 Dave Dennis (captain), 5 Kane Douglas, 4 Jacques Potgieter, 3 Sekope Kepu, 2 Tatafu Polota Nau, 1 Benn Robinson.
Replacements: to be announced
