RUGBY UNION

NSW WARATAHS

The NSW Waratahs are training the house down and aiming high as they strive to bounce back from their worst season in a decade by winning the 2018 Super Rugby title. The Tahs endured a dismal 2017 campaign, finishing 16th in the old 18-team competition with just three wins from 15 matches.

But the 2014 champions do have history of swiftly turning around their fortunes and the return of midfield maestro Kurtley Beale from his stint in the English Premiership will help.
