Hurricanes unchanged for Waratahs in Sydney

The Hurricanes will field the same starting team that beat the Reds in Wellington last week for this week’s Super Rugby match against the Waratahs in Sydney.

The Hurricanes have won their last four matches in a row and have the longest unbeaten run in Super Rugby which is still running.

Last week’s victory over the Reds moved the Hurricanes to the top of the New Zealand Conference and another win this week will keep them above the Chiefs.

While coach Mark Hammett has retained his starting line up and replacements bench there is a doubt over Chris Smylie.

Smylie has a hamstring niggle and will be replaced by Billy Guyton if he fails a last fitness test.


Andre Taylor, Cory Jane, Conrad Smith (captain), Alapati Leiua, Julian Savea, Beauden Barrett, TJ Perenara, Victor Vito, Jack Lam, Faifili Levave, James Broadhurst, Jeremy Thrush, Jeffery Toomaga-Allen, Dane Coles, Ben Franks.

Replacments : Motu Matu’u, Chris Eves, Reggie Goodes, Blade Thomson, Ardie Savea, Chris Smylie/Billy Guyton, Tim Bateman, Matt Proctor
