It’s Australian rugby’s oldest rivalry — the NSW Waratahs v the Queensland Reds.
In recent years, however, it’s been one way traffic with the Waratahs on a nine match winning streak.
The Reds have shown improvement in 2019, but are winless from their opening two matches after narrow losses against the Highlanders and Crusaders.
Daryl Gibson’s Waratahs, meanwhile, are coming off a bye after edging the Sunwolves 31-30 in Tokyo.
With all of his backs available, Gibson has decided to get all of his big names on the starting teamsheet.
Kurtley Beale has switched from inside centre to fullback, Israel Folau moves from No 15 to the right wing, Karmichael Hunt pushes in from outside centre to No 12 and Adam Ashley-Cooper is promoted from the bench to wear No 13.
