Waratahs wary of Brumbies’ maul

A HAT-TRICK of tries from former Wallabies skipper David Pocock in the Brumbies' win over the Highlanders has the Waratahs on red alert when the two clash in Canberra on Friday night.

"Yeah, obviously their rolling maul is going to be a big point - they scored three tries from it over the weekend - and that's definitely a point that we'll have to nullify," Chapman said.

"I think once the maul is set up really well, it's hard to stop. Either defending it in the air or stopping it before it gets going is very crucial.

"They've got a very technically good maul, so once they get set up we'll be in a bit of trouble, so we'll have to look at getting stuck in early."
