NO Michael Hooper, no worries for the Waratahs, who have found a readymade replacement in the No 7 jersey.
The unheralded former dairy farmer put in a memorable performance in his side’s historic 77-25 win over the Sunwolves.
It was the Waratahs’ most ever points and most tries (12) in a match.

The Waratahs lead the Australian Conference heading into the final round against rivals the Brumbies on Saturday night as they gear up for their first finals appearance since 2015.
There remains a strong Norths flavour among the boys in blue, boasting former Head Coach Simon Cron as assistant coach, Will Miller (7), Michael Wells (8) and Cameron Clarke (11) alongside Bryce Hegarty and Irae Simone on the bench in recent weeks.
