Waratahs change four for Rebels

Super Rugby
Saturday, May 20, 2017

WARATAHS Super Rugby head coach Daryl Gibson has named a starting team with four changes for Sunday's match against the Melbourne Rebels at Allianz Stadium in Sydney.

Lock Will Skelton, No 8 Michael Wells and halfback Nick Phipps all come off the bench into the starting side, while Taqele Naiyaravoro returns from injury, replacing Reece Robinson on the right wing.

Hooker Damien Fitzpatrick replaces Hugh Roach on the bench.

Daryl Gibson said the changes come from players working hard and competing for starting spots, forcing their way into the line-up.

"Given where the competition is at right now these games are huge and these are the matches that the players really want to play in," Gibson said.

In their last match against the Auckland Blues the NSW Waratahs trailed 26-0 at half time and won the second half by 33 points to 14 only to lose the game to the New Zealand side by 40-33.
