Michael Cheika Waratahs SR 2013

Boss: Michael Cheika

The Waratahs are set to hit the road in preparation for the new Super Rugby season, with their three pre-season matches having been announced.

The road trip will see the Waratahs kick-off their trials on the NSW and Victorian border at Albury, before returning to Sydney's Allianz Stadium for game two. The Waratahs then head to Newcastle for their final hit-out prior to the 2014 campaign.

They will face the Rebels, on the banks of the Murray River in Albury on Saturday, February 1.

Next up, is Sir John Kirwan's Blues at Allianz Stadium in Sydney on Friday, February 7.

The Highlanders in Hunter Stadium on February 14 completes the Waratahs' pre-season program.

Despite travelling close to 1500km, coach Michael Cheika is adamant they are not away games and the NSW country can expect more in the future.

"They are actually home games since they are all in NSW," he told the 'Tahs website.

"We will have to wait a couple of seasons for the possibility of taking our Super Rugby matches to the country areas so any chance we can we want to play in front of our country supporters."
