Beale blow for Waratahs

Matt Carraro will remain at inside centre for the Waratahs' semi-final against the Highlanders in Sydney on Saturday.

Carraro kept his spot after Kurtley Beale was ruled out with a quadriceps injury.

In the only change to the starting XV that beat the Reds two weeks ago, Rob Horne will start on the left wing having recovered from a calf niggle, with Peter Betham moving to the bench.

Waratahs – 15 Israel Folau, 14 Taqele Naiyaravoro, 13 Adam Ashley-Cooper, 12 Matt Carraro, 11 Rob Horne, 10 Bernard Foley, 9 Nick Phipps, 8 Wycliff Palu, 7 Michael Hooper, 6 Jacques Potgieter, 5 David Dennis (c), 4 Will Skelton, 3 Sekope Kepu, 2 Tatafu Polota-Nau, 1 Benn Robinson.
Subs (one to be omitted): 16 Tolu Latu, 17 Jeremy Tilse, 18 Paddy Ryan, 19 Mitchell Chapman, 20 Stephen Hoiles, 21 Patrick McCutcheon, 22 Brendan McKibbin, 23 Jono Lance, 24 Peter Betham.
