RugbyWA have made three changes to their team to take on the undefeated Waratahs women on Sunday afternoon.

The West Australians notched their first win of 2019 last weekend, over Melbourne, and will be looking for a major upset at home this weekend.

Coach Shannon Symon said putting in a consistent effort would be a key for them in their first home game of 2019.

"I’m liking how the team is going so far but however consistency is our main focus, we are still far from putting together an 80 minute effort," he said.

“Finally getting a game at home is huge boost for the ladies to be back home, the girls have a strong following here in WA so it will definitely help them lift.”

“The team is excited and confident, we know as a team we are a long way off where we want to be but we are constantly building and improving however in these short tournament formats we don’t have the luxury of time, results need to come this weekend.”

“The Waratahs are quality there’s no denying that any team who can go two seasons in this competition undefeated like they have is impressive, we are fully aware of the challenge ahead of us but as I’ve said in the past we aren’t here to make up numbers, we’re here to win.”

The Waratahs named their team on Wednesday.

RugbyWA take on NSW at Curtin University on Sunday March 17, kicking off at 3:30pm local, 6:30pm AEDT, LIVE on and Kayo Sports.
