Tahs wary of lowly Lions

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

SYDNEY - Skipper Dave Dennis has warned his NSW Waratahs there can be no room for complacency as they walk the finals tightrope in Sunday's Super Rugby hosting of the lowly Lions.

The Waratahs fell out of the top six for the first time all season after their weekend bye and will plummet further down the ladder if they fail to post back-to-back victories for the first time in 10 weeks.

"We've obviously had that run of win, loss, win, loss for the last couple of weeks and it is something we've talked about: putting that win, win back to back," Dennis said.

The Lions are running 11th with virtually no hope of making the playoffs and Dennis yesterday admitted the Waratahs of old "would have taken them a bit easy".

But determined to build a new winning culture at the Tahs and after watching the Lions come within a point of hauling in the Highlanders from 23-0 down last Saturday, Dennis promised there'd be no disrespecting the South Africans.

"They should have won that match," Dennis said.

"Seeing what they've done over previous weeks definitely gives you an insight into what they're capable of. They're a strong attacking team."

Despite being out of finals contention, the Lions have won four matches to be sitting third in the South African conference, above the Cheetahs and Stormers.
