Hunting jerseys

RICHARD FERGUSON updates followers of the latest Super Rugby news from Australia.

Hunting jerseys

The Waratahs team has been told to go hunting Brumbies jerseys, and not looking for specific players on the field.

This comes after Brumbies coach Jake White announced that George Smith will come off the bench this weekend. Coach Michael Cheika does not want his players to feel any form of inferiority complex around the legendary player.

Cheika wants his players to tackle jerseys and not want to do anything special when it comes to Smith.

Roberts ready for Super Rugby

Rebels coach Damien Hill expects debutant Angus Roberts to shine in his first Super Rugby match.

Roberts, who is starting at fullback this weekend, replaces James O’Connor, who is playing flyhalf in place of the injured Kurtley Beale.

Roberts played for Sydney University before being snapped up by the Rebels, after interest was shown by other Australian franchises.

Hill was quoted as saying the player has a good kicking game, good speed, an impressive pass and can defend.
