Harry out of Chiefs clash
April 5, 2000
A calf strain has ruled Wallaby prop Richard Harry out of Sunday's clash with the Chiefs in Hamilton. Coach Ian Kennedy had hoped to have the inspirational forward available as they have struggled up front all season.
Further bad news for Kennedy is that three other players will have to undergo fitness tests before the match. Prop Cameron Blades (ankle), flyhalf Manny Edmonds (calf) and utility forward Daniel Manu (Achilles tendon) will see the doctor before the must-win game for the Waratahs.
Waratahs squad: Cameron Blades, Rod Moore, Al Baxter, Jason Reilly, Brendan Cannon, Mark Crick, John Welborn, Tom Bowman, Daniel Manu, David Lyons, Phil Waugh, Stu Pinkerton, Tiaan Strauss, Sam Payne, Chris Whitaker, Christian Warner, Manuel Edmonds, Nathan Grey, Jason Little (capt), Scott Staniforth, Matt Dowling, Matthew Burke.
