Tahs dump prop Robinson

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

SYDNEY - NSW coach Michael Cheika has reshuffled his pack for the Waratahs' Super Rugby conference derby with the Melbourne Rebels on Friday night.

Cheika has relegated Benn Robinson to the bench in the wake of NSW's loss to the Brumbies last Saturday night, giving fellow Test prop Sekope Kepu the nod at loosehead.

"Keps has played well. He was probably a little bit unlucky at the start of the season to miss out," Cheika said yesterday,

"He had to wear that and he's been doing exactly what he needs to do to force his way back into the team.

"It's his opportunity."

Cheika will also start Wycliff Palu from the bench, but said the move was more about managing the destructive No.8's workload after several seasons disrupted by injury.

"We've got to make sure that Cliff is used correctly," the coach said.

"We're getting good value out of him at the moment."

Skipper Dave Dennis has been shifted to No.8, with South African Jacques Potgieter moving from lock to blindside flanker and big Will Skelton promoted to partner Kane Douglas in the second row.
