The Waratahs could suddenly find themselves with more scrumhalves that they know what to do with next season, with Australia Under-20 ace Matt Lucas moving to Sydney.
Lucas has played for the Australian U20s in the last two Junior world Championship and was also added to the Australian Sevens side as injury cover earlier this year, but he could be involved in Super Rugby come 2013.
Lucas has been signed by the Waratahs according to the Sydney Morning Herald, which means he could be up against his brother, Ben, when the 'Tahs take on the Reds next season.
The Waratahs now find themselves with four scrumhalves on their books for next season, with Grayson Hart, Brendan McKibbin and Sarel Pretorius already contracted.
The promotion of Hart to the starting line-up last weekend could mean the writing is on the wall for marquee signing Pretorius, who hasn't been able to hold down the No.9 jersey this season with McKibbin generally favoured by coach Michael Foley.
The coach was reportedly very happy with his new halfback combination of Hart and Bernard Foley, which is an indication of his plans for the 2013 season.
The Waratahs play their final match of this year's campaign against the Reds on Saturday and in all likelihood Hart and Foley will be at 9 and 10 once again.
