RUGBY MEETS CRICKET: After their successful win over the Stormers last weekend, the Waratahs have opted to take a more relaxed approach for their match against Sharks.

Waratahs, currently in Durban for a week of preparations against the Sharks, decided to acclimatise themselves with the weather and surroundings in the in the company of the Australia Cricket team.

The Australia Cricket team are currently on tour in South Africa and will play their first cricket Test match against the Proteas on March 1-5 in Durban.

Ned Hanigan, who scored the match-winning try against Stormers, was one of the Waratahs who ventured down to watch the cricketers in action.

Despite having the stature of a paceman, the lanky 22-year-old admits taking  to the nets for a stint as a cricketer is not something he wants to do soon.

"I don’t think I’ll be getting in the nets anytime soon," said Hanigan.

"I had a bit of a yarn with the fellas at the nets out the back, it’s good to just come and have a bit of a look about,"

"I watch Test cricket at home, but I can hardly see the ball coming down the pitch - really wouldn't like to face Mitchell Starc [Australia paceman]," he said, adding: "The concentration you must need to train at the highest level and put yourself in that situation… it’s impressive,"
