Blues vs Waratahs Tips


The Waratahs have been comfortably beaten on a number of occasions in 2021. They will struggle in Auckland so I’m backing the Blues to win by more than 34 points.

  • Blues have won their last 5 matches against the Waratahs.
  • Blues have won their last 2 matches.
  • Waratahs have lost their last 9 matches.
  • Waratahs have a -170 points difference in their last 9 matches.

Head to Head


The Blues have won their last five matches against the Waratahs. They last met during 2019 Super Rugby where the Blues just managed to win 31-29 at Eden Park.

Blues Form


The Blues made a magnificent start to their Super Rugby trans-Tasman campaign, beating the Rebels 50-3 in Melbourne last week. They will look to go back-to-back this weekend against the Waratahs with another four-try bonus point on offer.

The Auckland-based outfit had a disappointing Super Rugby Aotearoa tournament after finishing third. It was a season that started well but inconsistency hampered them later on.

Last week the Blues were completely dominant. They first built scoreboard pressure by taking the three points on offer. Once they felt confident and the Rebels started chasing the game, the Blues came out of their shell and played some incredible rugby in the second half.

Blues Team News


The Blues have no injury concerns this week. They will start at full strength.

Waratahs Form


The Waratahs have not won a match this season, suffering eight defeats in Super Rugby AU and one thus far in Super Rugby trans-Tasman. There has been a bit of improvement for the Waratahs in recent weeks but their young squad has struggled to maintain good starts.

Last week the Tahs were involved in quite an incredible match. They ultimately lost 64-48 at home to the Hurricanes. 

During the match the Waratahs showed attacking intent not yet seen in 2021 but it cost them defensively. They will need to find a better balance to their game but they'll take some confidence from their attacking display.

Waratahs Team News


Young flyhalf Will Harrison will have to make do with a place on the bench. Ben Donaldson has retained his starting birth after an impressive attacking display last week.
