Weepu favoured at 10 for Canes


12/02/2009 16:28:01

All Black halfback Piri Weepu will line up at first five-eighths for the Hurricanes in their Super 14 opener against the Waratahs at home on Saturday night.


It is seen as a clear indication coach Colin Cooper wants as much
experience as possible against last year's beaten finalists. Cooper
says he is looking for leadership and authority.


The Hurricanes will be without All Black centre Conrad Smith who has failed
to recover from a groin injury. Tamati Ellison will start in his place.
In the pack Neemia Tialata has been favoured at tighthead prop - Faifili Levave is at number six.

Hurricanes: 1 John Schwalger 2 Dane Coles 3 Neemia Tialata 4 Bryn Evans 5
Jason Eaton 6 Faifili Levave 7 Scott Waldrom 8 Rodney So'oialo 9 Alby
Mathewson 10 Piri Weepu 11 Hosea Gear 12 Ma'a Nonu 13 Tamati Ellison 14
Zac Guildford 15 Cory Jane



Reserves:
16 Ged Robinson 17 Jacob Ellison 18 Jeremy Thrush/Api Naikatini 19 Karl
Lowe 20 Dan Kirkpatrick 21 Jason Kawau 22 David Smith



http://www.newstalkzb.co.nz/newsdetail1.asp?storyID=152431

here is the Waratahs squad

Waratahs: Sam Norton-Knight, Lachie Turner, Rob Horne,
Timana Tahu, Lote Tuqiri, Kurtley Beale, Luke Burgess, Scott Fava,
Phil Waugh (capt), Ben Mowen, Will Caldwell, Dean Mumm, Al Baxter,
Tatafu Polota-Nau, Benn Robinson.

Res: Adam Freier/Damien Fitzpatrick, Jeremy Tilse/Dan
Palmer, Chris Thomson, Wycliff Palu, Brett Sheehan, Tom Carter,
Daniel Halangahu.

I love this decision to have Weepu starting at 10, lets Alby start. Very Happy

Good to see Timana Tahu starting for the Waratahs, there was talk that Tom Carter would start ahead of Tahu.

Is Willie Ripia injured?

Nope they just thinking Weepu Mathewson will be a better combo than Ripia Weepu, I agree with them.

Yea, Andrew Hore and Conrad Smith are both injured though. I would only make a couple of changes, Thrush for Evans and where is Victor Vito??

if DavidSmith is as dynamic as he was last season then easily ahead of guildford. zacs got skill and speed but to me he just hasnt grabbed that jersey by the balls and made it his.
smiths got less skill but his acceleration, speed, evasion skills and his hunger for work gets my thumbs up
unfortunately for weepu's AB chances he'll play 10 for most of the season. i was hoping ripia would step up but he cant have shone during the preseason. weepu doesnt lack anything in 10 other than a huge kick but with thats all out wieghed with weepu's street smarts and toughness.
may hurt his AB chances but it will make him a better player
