Waratahs coach Michael Foley has dismissed claims his side needs major surgery if they are to compete next season.

The Sydney franchise have endured a miserable campaign, with Saturday's 33-12 loss to the Hurricanes their 10 defeat of the season - a record sixth in succession.

However Foley, whose own position remains under scrutiny, insists that the current squad only needs minor tweaks.

Foley, who has already signed up-and-coming openside flanker Michael Hooper for next season, told AAP: "There's not a lot to do with this squad, there'll be a couple of things we'll look at.

"That (personnel changes) naturally happens as a result of players coming out of contract and there's a different landscape next year in terms of salary caps and so forth and we've already begun that process.

"I think Michael Hooper is a fair sign of the direction we're looking to take both in terms of quality and also younger players."
