    2016-05-12 09:32

    Cape Town - The Waratahs have named an unchanged XV for their Round 12 Super Rugby game against the Bulls in Sydney on Saturday (kick-off 11:45 SA time).

    The ‘Tahs will be looking to continue their impressive form following their 21-6 defeat over the Cheetahs in what was the franchise’s 150th win.

    Bernard Foley (60) will become the Waratahs' highest-ever Super Rugby-capped flyhalf, surpassing previous record holder Daniel Halangahu.

    Tatafu Polota-Nau will notch the second highest amount of games for NSW, running out for his 137th match for his home state this weekend, pipping Phil Waugh on 136 caps and behind Benn Robinson on 155.

    Utility back, Matt Carraro, is also set for a milestone, reaching his 50th Super Rugby cap this weekend, having played 45 games for the Waratahs and four for the Brumbies.

    Meanwhile, Jed Holloway is progressing well and has been flagged for an earlier-than-expected return after injuring his shoulder last Friday.
