Tahs back rookie Hart

The Waratahs have selected the uncapped Grayson Hart at scrumhalf for their clash with the Brumbies this weekend.

Hart has not featured at all for the Sydney side this year, but reports from Australia suggest the coaching staff have been impressed with what they’ve seen of him in the Shute Shield.

Berrick Barnes will move to inside centre with Rob Horne partnering him and Adam Ashley-Cooper at fullback. Lachie Turner, back from injury, and Drew Mitchell are on the right and left wings respectively.

Waratahs - 15 Adam Ashley-Cooper, 14 Lachie Turner, 13 Rob Horne, 12 Berrick Barnes, 11 Drew Mitchell, 10 Bernard Foley, 9 Grayson Hart, 8 Wycliff Palu, 7 Chris Alcock, 6 Dave Dennis, 5 Kane Douglas, 4 Dean Mumm, 3 Sekope Kepu, 2 Tatafu Polota-Nau, 1 Benn Robinson.
Subs: 16 Josh Mann-Rae, 17 Paddy Ryan, 18 Sitaleki Timani, 19 Lopeti Timani, 20 Brendan McKibbin, 21 Tom Carter, 22 Tom Kingston.
