The NSW Waratahs will take on the Western Force in Round 2 of Vodafone Super Rugby AU, hosting the newest member of Australia's domestic competition at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Head Coach, Rob Penney has named an unchanged starting lineup to face the Force in their first outing in the competition.

Karmichael Hunt will make his return from injury via the bench, with Joey Walton and Alex Newsome continuing their partnership in midfield.

Jack Maddocks will continue at fullback after a strong performance against the Reds, again flanked by James Ramm and Mark Nawaqanitawase.

Last weekend's debutants Will Harris, Tom Horton and Tiaan Tauakipulu all remain in the matchday squad.
