When you've taken maximum points from your first two games, the last thing you want is a bye. Winning is a habit that the Waratahs need to form early in the season.
Remember that old saying, "form is temporary, class is permanent."?
Luckily it looks like the Tahs have both in spades.
All chest-puffing aside, the early bye is not the end of the world.
Izzy Folau picked up a slight niggle and an extra week off will let him and Dave Dennis heal up.
With a massive game against the brumbies next week, Michael Cheika is allowed extra time to plan for an encounter which could prove pivotal in deciding the Australian conference. The fact that the brumbies will be returning from a hopefully bruising trip to New Zealand makes it even better.
Hopefully the tahs can figure out their lineout over the next fortnight and continue their winning ways.
How do you think the tahs should spend their week off?
