Here’s how to watch the 2022 Waratahs vs Hurricanes broadcast super rugby on FloRugby. The 2022 Hurricanes vs Waratahs Super Rugby pacific will play each on Saturday night starts on May 14, 2022.

The match will mark the 50th Super Rugby match the Hurricanes have played in Australia.

The Hurricanes are preparing for their next match on Australian soil as they head to Sydney to take on the Waratahs this Saturday, 9:45PM NZT at Leichhardt Oval. The NSW Waratahs have named their team to face the Hurricanes in Round 13 of the Harvey Norman Super Rugby Pacific competition.

Waratahs Head Coach Darren Coleman has named an unchanged backline but added one new face to his forward pack and two Wallabies to his bench to the side that defeated Moana Pasifika at Mt Smart Stadium last weekend.

After an impressive starting debut against Moana, Archer Holz remains in the starting front packing down with Angus Bell and Dave Porecki.

Hugh Sinclair is the only change to the starting side, named in the second row alongside Jed Holloway who leads the competition in lineout wins (52).

Charlie Gamble remains at openside flanker in Michael Hooper’s absence, allowing Will Harris and Rahboni Warren-Vosayaco to form an abrasive back-row.
