WALLABY FIVE-EIGHTHS Berrick Barnes will return from injury when the Waratahs take on the high-flying Highlanders in Dunedin on Saturday night.
Barnes missed the Sydneysiders’ first two games of the Super Rugby season due to a minor groin strain, but got through yesterday’s training session without any complaint.
He ran at second five alongside pivot Daniel Halangahu, a clear sign that he could play there against the Highlanders.
Waratahs backs coach Alan Gaffney says Barnes' return is a huge boost for the side.
“Having two ball players in any game is an added bonus and having a ball player of the quality of Berrick is a fantastic thing to have,” he says.« Back to Articles
