Emerging Waratahs named for second fixture

by Waratahs Media

The Emerging NSW Waratahs will play their second fixture, part of a series of matches against the Brumbies and Melbourne Rebels ahead of the start of the club rugby season.

Led by Shannon Fraser, the Emerging NSW Waratahs notched a strong win at Harlequins Oval over the Rebels last weekend.

They return to familiar surroundings at NSW Rugby HQ this Friday, with several changes to the starting XV.

Mack Mason will make his first appearance after picking up a groin injury in the NSW Waratahs final trial match in Dalby and Cameron Clark starts on the right wing - seeing Siosifa Lisala move to the left.

Charlie Gamble also starts in place of Carlo Tizzano in the back row, combining with Will Harris and Hugh Sincair - with the experienced Shoreman to captain the side again this week.

Tepai Moeroa and Joey Walton will continue to build their combination in the centre of the park, lining up in the midfield for a second week in a row.
