Sport Delaney claims un­der­dog sta­tus against the Waratahs

The Southland Times - - Front Page -

Fo­lau’s aerial prow­ess was in­stru­men­tal in the Waratahs’ scorch­ing start in Christchurch last week, although the Cru­saders were guilty of re­peat­edly hoof­ing the ball down the full­back’s throat.

Don’t ex­pect the 7-3 High­landers, who have won five of the last six matches be­tween the teams – their last loss was in 2014 (44-16) – to be so stupid as they at­tempt to keep the heat on the Hur­ri­canes and Cru­saders at the top of the Kiwi con­fer­ence.

Co-cap­tain Ben Smith is one of a num­ber of High­landers play­ers re­turn­ing to New Zealand to­mor­row for an All Blacks camp while the rest of the team head to Bris­bane to pre­pare for next week’s clash against the Reds. GETTY IM­AGES
