Can the Waratahs claim a second straight derby win?

Super Rugby

The Waratahs are looking for a second straight derby win when they face the Brumbies on Friday night but they'll have to do it without centre Karmichael Hunt, who was a late withdrawal. The Brumbies will be missing Wallabies duo Allan Alaalatoa and David Pocock for the clash with Les Makin and Tom Cusack stepping in. In Tokyo, the Reds have rested Test pair Taniela Tupou and Izack Rodda with Isaac Lucas taking the playmaking reins. Rebels winger Reece Hodge is set for his first 2019 start as Melbourne take on the Lions.
