Potgieter blow for Tahs

Waratahs flank Stephen Hoiles will replace the injured Jacques Potgieter for the match against the Sharks in Sydney on Saturday.

Potgieter, who will join the Sharks at the beginning of the 2016 Vodacom Super Rugby season, has been ruled out with a chest injury suffered in the loss to the Force last weekend.

Meanwhile, Michael Hooper has recovered from the knee injury that saw him limp off the field against the Force, and is fit to take his place on the side of the scrum.

Waratahs – 15 Israel Folau, 14 Taqele Naiyaravoro, 13 Adam Ashley-Cooper, 12 Kurtley Beale, 11 Rob Horne, 10 Bernard Foley, 9 Nick Phipps, 8 Wycliff Palu, 7 Michael Hooper, 6 Stephan Hoiles, 5 Dave Dennis (c), 4 Will Skelton, 3 Sekope Kepu, 2 Tolu Latu, 1 Benn Robinson.
Subs (three to be omitted): 16 Hugh Roach, 17 Jeremy Tilse, 18 Paddy Ryan, 19 Mitchell Chapman, 20 Jed Holloway, 21 Jack Dempsey, 22 Tala Gray, 23 Pat McCutcheon, 24 Brendan McKibbin, 25 Matt Carraro, 26 Peter Betham.
