Final squad of the regular season named


12/06/2019





Daryl Gibson has named his side for Round 18 of Vodafone Super Rugby, as the NSW Waratahs take on the Highlanders at Rugby Park, Invercargill.

It’s the NSW Waratahs final match of the regular season and there have been significant changes to the side that went down to the Brumbies in Round 17 due to both injury and mandatory rest periods.

Gibson has been forced to rest his Wallabies contingent – Michael Hooper, Kurtley Beale, Sekope Kepu, Bernard Foley and Rob Simmons – for their mandatory second game of the Super Rugby season.

Departing Club Captain, Nick Phipps will captain the side in his final appearance for the NSW Waratahs in the absence of Hooper.

Ned Hanigan and Jack Dempsey will return from injury, while Lachlan Swinton misses after sustaining a head injury.

In other changes Mack Mason will line up at flyhalf, Cameron Clark comes in on the right wing, and Alex Newsome shifts to fullback.

Harry Johnson-Holmes, Will Miller and Hugh Sinclair also join the starting side.
