Strauss out of favour with Waratahs
February 9, 2000
Tiann Strauss has been relegated to the substitutes' bench for the Waratahs' Super 12 warm-up against the Canterbury Crusaders in Sydney on Saturday.
Daniel Manu has been selected to play in the No. 8 position, a significant selection because the Waratahs have problems in the second row due to Wallaby Tom Bowman's likely absence for the first two weeks of Super 12.
The other significant selection is that of Manuel Edmonds ahead of Christian Warner at fly-half. This match will be Jason Little's first as Waratahs' skipper.
The full side is :
Matt Burke; Scott Staniforth, Jason Little. Nathan Grey, Matt Dowling, Manuel Edmonds, Chris Whitaker, Cameron Blades, Mark Crick,Richard Harry, John Welborn, Peter Besseling, Daniel Manu, Keith Gleeson, Stuart Pinkerton.
subs: Sam Payne, Christian Warner, Marc Stcherbina, Phil Waugh, Tiaan Strauss,Rod Moore, Brendon Cannon, Luke Inman,David Lyons, Jono West.
