“I’ve got a few family members in there. I got a cousin playing prop there and a family friend that I grew up with playing 10. I’m really close with them and we talk almost every second day. It’s going to be interesting, they’ve been giving me a bit of heckle in our WhatsApp group.”

Nadolo says his team knows it’ll be a different ball game compared to last year and similar sentiments were shared by Waratahs Assistant coach Pauliu Taumoepeau.

“Looking at their set-piece they have a really good coach in Brad Harris. I think they’re able to just identify what they try to do at line-out, defense and times like that. They just seem to have it a little bit more together than what they were last year.”

The match will kick off at 8:35pm tomorrow and you can watch it LIVE on the FBC Sports channel.
