Saturday’s clash between the NSW Waratahs and Brumbies will carry added significance this year, with the introduction of the Dan Vickerman Cup.

A well respected and much loved player of both the NSW Waratahs and the Brumbies, the Clubs wanted to honour him as part of the annual grudge match.

NSW Rugby CEO, Andrew Hore, said the Dan Vickerman Cup will add further weight to what is already expected to be a tough battle between the sides.

“Dan was one of those team mates who was admired by all that knew him and I know both sides will be wanting to take home the Dan Vickerman Cup.  It is another way for the rugby community to recognise Dan’s contribution to rugby,” said Hore.

“The clash between the Tahs and Brumbies is always a feature on the Super Rugby calendar and we are looking forward to hosting them on our turf in what we expect to be a very physical match up,” he said.

Plus500 Brumbies CEO Michael Thomson commented: “The Brumbies against the Waratahs is always one of the highlights of the season and the conception of the Dan Vickerman Cup will only add to the spectacle.

“There have been several epic clashes between the clubs down the years and the rivalry has built into a healthy respect. Dan was an instrumental figure at both teams and the introduction of this trophy is a fine way to honour his memory.”

The NSW Waratahs will host the Brumbies on Saturday 18 March at 7:40pm at Allianz Stadium.  Gates open from 6pm – www.waratahs.com.au/tickets
