Home Reds v Waratahs (Result)

    Reds v Waratahs (Result)




    It was a game where the scores changed more than your wife deciding what dress to wear on a Saturday evening.

    From the start there was not much separating the two teams and the home side came back every time the Waratahs scored a try but at the end went down 40-32.

    Action pack start from the Waratahs as they took full advantage from a poor pass from the Reds inside their own twenty two to send Bernard Foley over for the first try.

    Foley converted his own try for an early 7-0 lead. The Reds hit back immediately when Angus Blyth powered over for the home side first try.

    Samu Kerevi then got a great break and offload to send Campbell down the line and their second try and the lead of 10-7.

    It was the Waratahs turn to score next when Beale went over the line and TMO could not see anything to overturn the on-field decision.

    This gave the Waratahs the lead of 14-10.

    The Reds came back again to take a 15-14 lead at the break when Niavalu a magnificent pass from McGahan.

    The second half did not change much with both teams keeping the other close on the scoreboard.

    It was the Reds that scored first in the second half when Hegarty got over for the first of his two tries in the match to extend the lead to 22-14.

    The Waratahs hit back with a try from Newsome got over to make it a 1 point game again.

    It was Hegarty with some great footwork that went over next and extend the lead again for the Reds. With the conversions not hitting the mark for the Reds it was always going to play some role in the end result.

    The Waratahs was again next to score when Wells went over with the conversion to give them the lead again.

    Foley kicked a penalty over before the Reds got over the for another try by Mafi. This gave them a 32-31 lead but a few penalties by Foley took the game away from the Reds.

    At the end the missed conversions cost the home side as the Waratahs took the win with 40-32.
