The Waratahs return from a bye and desperate to put a run together which could yet see them catch the Brumbies in the Australian Conference. Coming into this round the Tahs were five points off the pace but they do have other company with no Australian franchise capable of cutting loose thus far. In Australian derby matches this season the Tahs have won three from four including a come from behind 32-25 win over the Rebels in Melbourne in Round 5. Those three wins came by margins of no more than seven points but they were beaten by the Brumbies (28-12) in Sydney in Round 4.
The Rebels remain stuck on one win (alongside one draw and eight defeats) and that sole victory came back in Round 8 when they saw off the Brumbies 19-17 in Melbourne. They have already lost derby matches to the Tahs and the Reds in Melbourne and their overall away form this season has consisted of hidings at the Hurricanes, Highlanders and the Kings alongside a surprise 9-9 draw at the Sharks. The Rebels have scored just two tries in those four away fixtures, both of which came in the 51-12 loss at the Highlanders in Round 6.
One of the crazier games of the 2017 season thus far saw the Waratahs complete a dramatic comeback to win 32-25 in Melbourne, despite the Rebels have led 25-6 at the break. Two tries from Reece Hodge, who finished with 20 points, and another from Tom English helped the Rebels build up that commanding lead. But scores from Ned Hanigan, Reece Robinson, Michael Wells and finally David Horwitz sparked wild scenes on the Waratahs bench at the final whistle.
The Waratahs have won 10 of their previous 12 clashes between these teams, with their two losses coming by margins of no greater than four points. The Waratahs have lost their last four games on home turf, never before in their Super Rugby history have they lost more home fixtures in succession. The Rebels have won three of their last four games played on a Sunday, including a brace of wins last season against the Waratahs and Force. The Waratahs have scored six tries this season after opting to take a penalty tap, more than any other team in the competition while the Rebels are yet to score from via the same method.
A fresher Waratahs outfit looks to have the edge, although they will hope to start the game slightly better than last time to avoid another dramatic second-half fightback… Waratahs by eight.
