The New South Wales Waratahs ( or ;"waratah." Collins English Dictionary – Complete & Unabridged 10th Edition. HarperCollins Publishers. Retrieved 2010-08-17. . referred to as HSBC Waratahs for sponsorship reasons, the Waratahs, the Tahs or the florists) are an Australian rugby union football team, representing the majority of New South Wales in the Super 15 (formerly Super 14) Super Rugby competition. The Riverina and other southern parts of the state, are represented by the Brumbies, who are based in Canberra and owned by the ACT and Southern NSW Rugby Union.

The Waratahs has historically been the name for the New South Wales Rugby Union (NSWRU) representative team, and became the name for the New South Wales team when it entered the Super Six, Super 10 and Super 12 competitions. The name and emblem comes from the waratah, the state flower for New South Wales. Their home ground is Sydney Football Stadium at Moore Park in Sydney.
