The Waratahs have made four changes to their side to face the Blues on Friday night, with Reece Robinson coming on to the wing.

Robinson comes into the starting side for suspended winger Taqele Naiyaravoro in the must-win clash, in the only starting backline change.

The backrow has been reshuffle, with Dave Dennis moving into number eight in potentially his last NSW game and Jack Dempsey playing at blindside,, with Dean Mumm moving into the second row.

Wycliff Palu will play potentially his last Waratahs game from the bench, while rookie NSW back Jim Stewart will vie for his Super Rugby debut off the pine as well.

Halfback Nick Phipps will also play his 50th match for NSW on the weekend.

The Waratahs take on the Blues on Friday night at 5:35pm AEST.
