The Waratahs will open their Super Rugby campaign at home against the Hurricanes tonight and look over the odds to win. There is no denying the class that the Waratahs boast across the paddock but they have simply failed to put it all together for 80 minutes and for the entire season, recently. They’re sure to have taken plenty of benefit from a few credible trial performances and will be quietly confident of defeating the Hurricanes in front of the Sydney faithful.
This looks like being the biggest mismatch of the round and the league-leading Glory can take another big step towards the minor premiership by dispatching the Roar in the nation’s west tonight. The Roar pulled off a big upset at home to Sydney last week, but this is a completely different class of side and hostile territory.
