Tahs keep faith in McKibbin
28 Mar 2012
Waratahs coach Michael Foley has retained the same starting side for Saturday’s clash with the Chiefs.
This means that Brendan McKibbin, the Waratahs’ goal-kicking scrumhalf, is again preferred ahead of South African Sarel Pretorius.
Tom Carter is also at No 12 after having a big game against the Sharks. Carter will be tasked with stopping Sonny Bill Williams in Hamilton this weekend.
