NSW Waratahs name large squad for Blues match in the wake of injury woes

5:55 pm on 24 March 2009

The New South Wales Waratahs have named an enlarged 24 strong squad for Friday night's Super 14 rugby match against the Blues in Auckland, with four front line forwards under an injury cloud.

The Waratahs arrive tomorrow with skipper Phil Waugh among those injured, having until Thursday's captain's run to prove his fitness.

It's a key match for both sides with the Waratahs having dropped to third after a home loss to the Crusaders last weekend while the Blues have slipped to fifth after conceding nine tries to the Chiefs in Hamilton.
