- Super 15 Rugby™: FOLLOW the action live as the NSW Waratahs and Brumbies do battle at ANZ Stadium. If you are a NSW supporter then you should have taken this week easy, as the importance of the clash between the Waratahs and Brumbies this weekend cannot be underestimated.
We’ll have live scores and commentary from 7.40pm AEST.
Win this and you keep the mathematical dream alive, lose and the challenge might become insurmountable.
To qualify for the playoffs, the Waratahs need to collect a win in every game and a bonus point in every match will secure a spot, so it isn’t going to be easy, but as JFK said famously all that many years ago, “We do this not because it is easy, but because it is hard”.
The Brumbies on the other hand is now playing catch up, by winning last weekend’s clash against the Sharks the Reds are now three points ahead of the Brumbies in actual log points earned and one win ahead of the Brumbies who has been top of the Australian Conference for the most part.
