    Foley makes one change

    Sydney - Waratahs coach Michael Foley has made one change to the starting line-up for Saturday's clash against the Force at the Sydney Football Stadium.
    Former Force player, Jono Jenkins, comes in as openside flank to replace Pat McCutcheon who dislocated his ankle during the Waratahs's 18-17 loss to the Highlanders in Dunedin on Saturday. Chris Alcock is back on the bench after suffering a headknock in the round two win over the Melbourne Rebels.


    Foley has opted for five forwards on the bench with the return of Wallaby lock Sitaleki Timani from a stint in Japanese club rugby. His brother Lopeti has also been named despite being stuck in New Zealand trying to sort out his visa so he can re-enter Australia.



    Last week, he had to travel to his home country of Tonga to ensure he could get a visa clearance to enter New Zealand and play for the Waratahs against the Highlanders in Dunedin last Saturday.

    Wallabies No 8 Wycliff Palu has also been ruled out. Palu failed to recover sufficiently from the lower leg injury that kept him out of last week’s match.

    He had a light training run on Tuesday but was unable to get the tick of approval from medical staff with Tevita Metuisela retained at No 8.

    Teams:

    Waratahs: 15 Bernard Foley, 14 Tom Kingston, 13 Rob Horne, 12 Berrick Barnes, 11 Adam Ashley-Cooper, 10 Daniel Halangahu (captain), 9 Sarel Pretorius, 8 Tevita Metuisela, 7 Jono Jenkins, 6 Dave Dennis, 5 Kane Douglas, 4 Dean Mumm, 3 Sekope Kepu, 2 Tatafu Polota-Nau, 1 Benn Robinson

    Substitutes: 16 John Ulugia, 17 Paddy Ryan, 18 Sitaleki Timani, 19 Lopeti Timani, 20 Chris Alcock, 21 Brendan McKibbin, 22 Tom Carter

    Given that two of the backrow are force rejects we should destroy them at the breakdown but then again they will have something to prove. Browny will need to step up this week, he has had his 1 game to settle back in

    The Tahs seem to have unbelievable depth considering they are missing Mitchell, Turner, Elsom, Palu, Vickerman, Fitzpatrick, McCutcheon, Pakalani just lucky most of them are injury prone

    Got to attack the hell out of that inside channel. Pretorius isn't renown for his tackling. Halangahu isn't the best tackler either. I'd wager Barnes would be a little subdued too.

    Going to put a $100 on the Force to win... If we cant win against the Tarts whiles missing the likes of "Mitchell, Turner, Elsom, Palu, Vickerman, Fitzpatrick, McCutcheon, Pakalani" (whats that 6.5 Wallabies players) then we will NEVER beat the Tarts.

    __________________________

    Plus good to see the Tahs Marketing department is keeping up with the times (the logo still has Timaha Tahu) he hasn't played with them for 4 years and is doing the merry-go-round with the NRL.

    __________________________

    Just hope someone knocks Carter out also.. I know some of the EWF players read the forums, so if you happen to be reading this.. If you cant win (for some unknown reason) please cleanup Carter for me....

    What is deeply disturbing however is the complete lack of alignment, attacking options, depth and counter attack from the Force backline...........from an ex wallaby aatack coach, I find it disappointing.
