NSW Waratahs team named for round 12

NSW Waratahs Head Coach Daryl Gibson has named his side that will take on the Bulls on Saturday night in South Africa.

The NSW Waratahs landed earlier in the week and the Gibson said they have adjusted to the altitude well.

“The more we come to South Africa, there more it becomes normal. There is still that initial bursting in the lungs in the first five minutes… but once the players get over that and they settle down it’s not such as bad thing,” he said.

Aussie teams have had notched up some good performances against the South African teams this season and Gibson is hopeful the Waratahs can do the same.

"Across the competition things are very even. The Reds beating the Sharks in Durban, the Brumbies doing very well, the Rebels probably should have got a bit more out of their tour as well.

“Between all the sides, on their day anyone can tip anyone up and that’s what we are aiming to do.”
