Polota-Nau named for Super comeback

NSW Waratahs hooker Tatafu Polota-Nau has been named to make his long-awaited return from concussion-related problems against Queensland in Sydney this weekend.

Polota-Nau was ruled out for five weeks in May after suffering a concussion against the Brumbies.

It was the second head knock to rule him out of games this season and the most recent of a long list of concussions in his career.

The 29-year-old enjoyed a busy training session at Moore Park on Thursday at the forefront of scrummaging and lineout work ahead of Saturday’s game.

Teammate Michael Hooper was impressed by Polota-Nau’s work on the training paddock.

“He’s looking sharp. He’s scrumming well and moving well. He’s had a lot of time to get his body and head right,” Hooper said.

Waratahs team: Israel Folau, Taqele Naiyaravoro, Adam Ashley-Cooper, Kurtley Beale, Matt Carraro, Bernard Foley, Nick Phipps, Wycliff Palu, Michael Hooper, Jacques Potgieter, David Dennis (capt), Will Skelton, Sekope Kepu, Tatafu Polota-Nau, Benn Robinson. Res: Hugh Roach, Jeremy Tilse, Paddy Ryan, Mitchell Chapman, Dean Mumm, Stephen Hoiles, Brendan McKibbin, Peter Betham.
