Who will win Waratahs vs Blues Super Rugby match?

The Waratahs are well and truly going through a rebuilding phase under new coach Rob Penney. The Blues, meanwhile, have a horror injury toll in just week two of the new season. It's a tight match to pick, but we'll just give the edge to the Tahs in Newcastle – with zero confidence.
