Waratahs get Folau back for Sunwolves
Cape Town - The return of Israel Folau at fullback is the only change to the Waratahs' starting line-up for Saturday’s match against the Sunwolves.
The Waratahs go into the game as Australian Conference leaders after a nail-biting 31-26 win against the Melbourne Rebels last Friday.
Head coach Daryl Gibson said the next challenge is another opportunity for the team to fulfil on their promise of delivering consistent performances.
"We have had a settled week in terms of our preparation and it will help us towards what is a very exciting period for us over the next two weeks," Gibson said.
"We have two excellent home games, one against a team that is very exciting with ball in hand. It will be a great game to watch (on Saturday). The Sunwolves play very fast, they are very well organised and we have prepared ourselves for that style of game."
