Super Rugby LIVE: Waratahs vs Hurricanes

The Brookvale Oval in the Manly suburb of Sydney was sold out ahead of a season opening clash between the Waratahs and the Hurricanes in what promises to be an enthralling contest.

The hosts will be looking to Bernard Foley to run their game from the number ten jersey while the presence of Israel Folau at the back will serve to keep the Hurricanes kicking game honest.

The Hurricanes are without their influential flyhalf with Fletcher Smith filling in for absent All Black Beauden Barrett.

Brother Jordy Barrett will take up the fullback position for the Hurricanes at the outset of what could be a watershed season for the youngest member of New Zealand’s pre-eminent contemporary rugby family.
