Despite having a bye last weekend, the Hurricanes retained top spot in the overall table, with a three point lead over fellow countrymen the Chiefs, and they remain the only unbeaten side in the 2015 tournament at the end of Round 9, with seven wins to their credit thus far. Visits to New Zealand have not proved very productive for the Waratahs in recent times, with just a solitary success from the last 10 fixtures played there. A 33-17 victory against the then reigning Champions the Chiefs in New Plymouth last season.

The Champions have had a struggle to find any consistence this season, in the defence of the trophy. Last weekend’s defeat in Sydney against the Stormers by 18-32, being a third loss of the season, which leaves them in second position in the Australian Conference, seven points behind the Brumbies, although they do have a game in hand on the Canberra based outfit. The Waratahs have a 50% winning record against Kiwi sides in 2015, having lost in Dunedin against the Highlanders, but beating the Blues in Sydney.
