The Waratahs and the Reds open their Super Rugby 2016 campaign on Saturday, with an Australian derby against each other at the Allianz Stadium in Sydney. Australian sides have not fared well over the last decade in Super Rugby, with just two titles, provided in 2011 by the Queensland Reds and 2014 by the Waratahs.

The Waratahs claimed the Australian Conference title in 2015, finishing five points clear of the Brumbies, after winning 11 of the 16 games they played during the regular season. However, despite home advantage in the play-offs against the Highlanders, the defence of their title came to an end, when they were soundly beaten by 17-35. The Tahs won six of their eight national derbies in 2015, the two defeats coming quite surprisingly against the Perth based force, who defeated them both home and away.

The Reds suffered a disastrous campaign in 2015, as they finished in 13th position in the overall standings, and the Force being the only Australian side finishing below them. They managed a mere four wins during the course of the season, and had the worst points difference, -187, of all the teams in the tournament. Both games last season between Saturday's opponents, went the way of the Waratahs, who triumphed 23-5 in Brisbane, and by 31-5 in Sydney.

The Waratahs have it in their own hands to secure a home match in the semi-finals of the 2015 Super Rugby tournament. A bonus point win in Sydney against the Reds on Saturday, will ensure that they finish on top of the Australian Conference.

The Waratahs lead the Brumbies by virtue of having recorded one more win so far in the regular season. As long as they secure as many points from the Queensland Reds contest, as the Brumbies do when they play the Crusaders in Canberra, they will claim the advantage of passage direct to the last four. With the Brumbies playing on Friday, the Waratahs also have the advantage of knowing exactly what they have to do, by the time their own match kicks off.

The reigning Champions have won five of the Australian derbies that they have played so far in 2015, although they have managed only one try-sciring bonus point during thise wins. Last weekend, however, they did fill their boots, with nine tries as they crushed the Cheetahs by 58-33 in Bloem. The Reds in realoity shouldn't present the Sydney side with too many problems, as they have managed a mere four wins throughout the regular season. However, three of those wins have come against other Australian opposition.

After starting their Super Rugby campaign with a try-scoring bonus point victory against the Force, Waratahs coach Michael Cheika has made just one change to his team for this weekend's match against the Reds at ANZ Stadium.

Cheika has drafted the former Springbok lock Jacques Potgieter into the starting XV, replacing the 21 year old Will Skelton, who drops onto the bench, for the Templeton Cup match on Saturday. Cheika, made it clear that the change was not about the players' form, but was about picking players having specific roles to play against particular opposition. Potgieter is certainly more experienced, and will bring addition physicality to the Waratahs' game in both attack and defence. Paddy Ryan has retained his place in the front row, despite the strong challenge from Sekope Kepu, and forms an all wallaby front row, alongside Benn Robinson and Tatafu Polota Nau.

The prestigious Templeton Cup is played between the oldest and fiercest rivals in Australian rugby, the Queensland Reds and the New South Wales Waratahs. It is named after legendary Queensland coach and administrator Bob Templeton (1932-1999), being introduced in 2000 to commemorate the life and service to rugby that Templeton gave. Saturday's match will form the centerpieces of NSW's 140th anniversary celebrations.

The Tahs are out of playoff contention but this game still has significance for the Reds as it could decide their playoff venue and opponents. The Queensland Reds are currently in fifth place and look set for a demanding trip to Christchurch in their playoff quarterfinal. A loss for the Queenslanders could however see them being leapfrogged by the Cheetahs, saving them a trip to Christchurch but landing them with one either to Canberra, Pretoria or Hamilton, depending on how results pan out across the final round. The Reds will also be without skipper James Horwill, ace scrumhalf Will Genia and slippery winger Digby Ioane for this clash. The Tahs have a number of Wallabies on their side and with Michael Cheika’s plans coming together in the last few rounds, the NSW men look a more potent attacking force on paper. Also if results go their way, the Tahs could finish as high as 7th on the log.

Saturday, February 25th in Super Rugby the Waratahs and the Queensland Reds will play in Sydney in a match at 19:40 local time and 08:40 GMT. The Waratahs are part of the Australian Super Rugby Conference right now, and they are currently in the second spot with the Reds at the top. However, this is not by virtue of points earned, because none of the teams in the Australian Conference has played a game yet. This holds true for the teams in the New Zealand and South African Conferences as well, so things will change after this week's set of games.
