Waugh: should be a good game

1:02 pm on 23 July 2008

The veteran Wallabies flanker Phil Waugh says Saturday's Tri-Nations and Bledisloe Cup clash against the All Blacks in Sydney should be a humdinger.

What with the Robbie Deans intrigue and the close-but-not-close-enough results between the two sides last season, Waugh says he's looking forward to the challenge.

His counterpart George Smith is set to be named as captain this afternoon following the withdrawal of inspirational skipper Stirling Mortlock with concussion from the Springboks Test last weekend.
