The Waratahs and Brumbies returned from their sojourns abroad last week and that meant more Super Rugby stars in action on Saturday.

Who turned out for your club?


Easts had their full contingent of Waratahs stars available for their clash with Eastwood - Cody Walker, Ryan McCauley, Tom Staniforth, Mack Mason and Alex Newsome all featuring in the win.

Sydney University were similarly aided by a strong contingent of stars - Harry Johnson-Holmes, Lachie Swinton, Dave McDuling, Brad Wilkin and Henry Clunies-Ross all starting in their win over Mitch Short and Randwick.

Robbie Coleman crossed for Manly as they secured the only away win of the weekend.

The large majority of Reds were unavailable for their clubs with a Friday night showdown against the Blues awaiting the Queenslanders upon their return from the June break but there will still a few familiar faces plying their trade in clubland.
