With the team back from their bye week, NSW Waratahs back Andrew Kellaway is excited to be back into the fold ahead of Sunday afternoon’s clash against the Melbourne Rebels.

“It’s always great to come back after a bye, everyone loves being around each other,” said Kellaway. “You come back and everyone is very bubbly.”

The young winger/fullback is back and readily available for the weekend after a small stint on the sideline.

“It was a weird one,” said Kellaway about his injury. “I was fine, it (my throat) was a little bit sore.. I actually thought I was sick, I had a sore throat so I couldn’t carry on too much about it.”

With the attention turned to round thirteen of the Vodafone Super Rugby, teammate Rob Horne reaffirmed the team’s mentality.

“Within these four walls, we are pretty engulfed in what we are doing and pretty focused on putting out a good performance that we and all our supporters want,” said Horne.

“Every game is important and we are pretty keen to work hard every day and try to put out the performance we are capable of.

“I love every time I pull on the jersey, so if I can go out and put on some good showing in the next couple of games, it would be good.

NSW Waratahs Head Coach Daryl Gibson believes that the team have a good backing from players who have returned from injury.

“We are in a really fortunate position at the moment,” said Gibson. “We don’t have a lot of injuries and we have a really stable squad right now to pick from. That’s going to increase the competition, particularly given where the competition is at.

“These games are huge… and it means we need players ready to play.”

The NSW Waratahs take on the Melbourne Rebels this Sunday afternoon at 4:00PM AEST. Don’t forget: Ladies’ Day Function prior to the match, more details at
