    Double blow for Waratahs

    2015-05-26 09:38

    THE Waratahs’ Super Rugby title defence suffered a double blow when hooker Silatolu Latu was suspended for four weeks and lock Will Skelton for a fortnight yesterday.

    The pair were guilty of combing for a tip tackle on Canterbury Crusaders lock Sam Whitelock in the 17th minute of their 32-22 win in Sydney on Saturday that took them to the top of the Australian Conference ahead of the ACT Brumbies.

    “Latu played a more active role in the lifting and twisting of their opponent, Sam Whitelock, contributing more significantly to the end result than Skelton,” citing officer Robert Stelzner said. — Reuters
