Blues finally got back to winning ways when they beat the Waratahs 24-21 on Saturday

It was an exciting game in the first half from both teams with both teams wanting to play rugby with ball in hand.

It was the Blues quicker out of the blocks with there first try after a Waratahs mistake in their own twenty-two. This gave them an early 7-0 lead which was extended to 10-0 a few minutes later.

The Waratahs got their first try after the Blues lost a player to the bin for a dangerous tackle close to their line.

This made the difference just three points but with one man in the bin the Blues showed off their skills and got their second try of the match with a handy lead of 15-7.

The Tahs came right back with a try in the corner which made the lead only 15-14 but before halftime the Blues got another penalty over to make the halftime lead 18-14.

The Waratahs made a few mistakes in the Blues red zone which could have made a huge difference.

The second half did not give us anything better than the first with both teams having opportunities but unable to score tries.

The Blues took their points and got to 24-14 before the Waratahs scored a great try through their captain Hooper in the 69th minute of the game.

The Tahs was unable to get any other points giving the Blues a much needed win at the end
