Ireland backed up their 29-15 victory over South Africa a fortnight ago with a 49-7 thumping of that great rugby powerhouse Georgia. The Wallabies suffered their first loss of the spring tour and first under new coach Michael Cheika, going down to France 29-26 in Paris.

Izzy Folau has been ruled out of the weekend's clash with the Stormers, forcing Michael Cheika to make six changes for the Round 8 clash against the Stormers in Cape Town in the early hours of Sunday morning. In a big blow for the Waratahs, who are aiming to become the first Australian team this year to score a win in Africa this weekend. They will now have to do it without the Asteron Life Super Rugby competition’s leading try scorer, who continues his recovery from a throat injury and will be replaced at fullback by Kurtley Beale. Following a tackle from Fran Steyn, Beale has recovered from a minor case of whiplash to wear number 15 for the first time in 2014. Read the full story at

Blues and Highlanders to test Waratahs readiness. In the Waratahs second pre-season trial they will face the Blues and Waratahs assistant coach and former All Black Daryl Gibson believes it could be a promoters dream, with convert Benji Marshall making his first foray into senior rugby and he could be facing up to Kurtley Beale. It will be Michael Cheika's teams second trial match, playing the Rebels before two matches against Kiwi rivals. “Watching Benji transition from league to union will be interesting especially given the very successful debut season by Israel Folau," the former Crusaders back said. Assisting Marshall’s transformation is a young and exciting backline that has a mix of experience with Ma Nonu plus exciting youngsters Charlie Piutau and Francis Saili as well as last season’s leading try scorer in Super Rugby, Frank Halai. There’s a lot at stake in the final trial against the Highlanders at Newcastle’s Hunter Stadium. Forget what position the Highlanders finished 2013, they’ ...
Pre-season road trip for Waratahs 18th December 2013 06:23 Boss: Michael Cheika Related links Teams NSW Waratahs The Waratahs are set to hit the road in preparation for the new Super Rugby season, with their three pre-season matches having been announced. The road trip will see the Waratahs kick-off their trials on the NSW and Victorian border at Albury, before returning to Sydney's Allianz Stadium for game two. The Waratahs then head to Newcastle for their final hit-out prior to the 2014 campaign. They will face the Rebels, on the banks of the Murray River in Albury on Saturday, February 1. Next up, is Sir John Kirwan's Blues at Allianz Stadium in Sydney on Friday, February 7. The Highlanders in Hunter Stadium on February 14 completes the Waratahs' pre-season program. Despite travelling close to 1500km, coach Michael Cheika is adamant they are not away games and the NSW country can expect more in the future. "They are actually home games since they are all in NSW," he told the 'Tahs website. "We will hav ...

This is going to be some game... As Waratahs coach Michael Cheika, who guided Leinster to Heineken Cup glory in 2009, has also warned that "anything in red that moves, we'll have a crack at", the Allianz Stadium (formerly the Sydney Football Stadium) could be in for another humdinger.
NSW Waratahs name team to face the Lions Posted on Jun 14, 2013 Waratahs coach Michael Cheika has named a strong line-up to play the Lions this weekend. Released Wallaby Dave Dennis captains the team from no.8, while centre Rob Horne has also been allowed to play by Australia coach Robbie Deans. Bernard Foley, back from international 7s duty, runs the show from fly-half, and is one of the most dangerous players in this year’s Super Rugby competition. He tops the stats board for try assists, as well as being third in the clean breaks stakes. Outside him, flyer Cam Crawford has 7 tries in Super Rugby this season – one away from the top of the leaderboard – while experienced international Drew Mitchell lines up at fullback, and will be familiar with a lot of the guys he is facing. There is only one player in the entire squad without Super Rugby experience, replacement prop Sam Talaki. Waratahs Head Coach Michael Cheika said, “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and we want it to be something wor ...
Lets get behind the Aussies! I little history below! New South Wales were the first opponents in Australia for the Lions on 2 June, 1888. The Lions were 18-2 and 16-2 winners in the two games on that inaugural tour, but the Waratahs have beaten them four times since - in 1908, 1930, 1950 and 1959. The Lions were 41-24 victors in the last meeting at the Sydney Football Stadium in 2001. Former Leinster and Stade Francais coach Michael Cheika is the new coach of a Waratahs team boasting 13 members of the Wallaby training squad for the Lions tour. Hope to see you at Allianz Stadium!!!

Sorry to my non rugby friends but in hindsight it was a good choice not to choose Fridays Super Rugby Waratahs v rebels as one of my matches this year... Except for the exciting developments in the Tahs playing style 2013. Ill know more after watching the replay a 2nd time but 3 features were heartening... The short passing to move the ball wider of each ruck, the look to pop the ball to others as you met tacklers and thirdly to long place the ball if u did get stopped. This equates to keeping the ball moving, setting the 2nd half pace of the game & freeing backs to run the ball... Good work Michael Cheika. Now they just need the hands and heads to do it well!!!
Robinson returns for Tahs after wake-up call WHEN Benn Robinson missed out on a starting place with the Waratahs in last Saturday's season opener, the Wallabies loose-head prop found the painful memories of being left out of the playing squad by then coach Ewen McKenzie in 2008 were only skin deep. After being named in the Waratahs starting side for Friday's round-three meeting with the Melbourne Rebels at Allianz Stadium, Robinson said being dropped to the NSW Academy by McKenzie reminded him how tenuous selection can be. As it did when he was dropped to the bench for Jeremy Tilse by Waratahs coach Michael Cheika for last... ~SportsMan
