Waratahs outlast storming finish from the Brumbies to win trial

THE New South Wales Waratahs have outlasted the Brumbies 17-14 for a confidence-boosting win in their last trial match before the Super 14 competition begins.

In a mostly scrappy and error-riddled affair, the Waratahs showed flashes of brilliance to score a tight win in front of 8,321 fans at the Sydney Football Stadium.

The Waratahs scored two tries in the first half with their first-choice side on the field, before the Brumbies staged their comeback after the break.

The men in blue had most of the possession in the first half and created a handful of early chances, but strong Brumbies goal-line defence kept them out on three occasions.

Unable to crack the Brumbies defence, Phil Waugh finally elected to take the points and Kurtley Beale's penalty goal made it 3-0.

When half-back Brett Sheehan returned from the blood bin in the 18th minute, his quick ball to Beale off the back of a ruck sparked the night's first five-pointer.

Fly-half Beale threw a cut-out pass to centre Timana Tahu, who made a storming run before offloading to Rob Horne who found the chalk from 10m out.

Beale scored the Waratahs' second try in the 58th min when Daniel Halangahu managed to scoop up an ordinary ball off his bootlaces, regather and send a well-timed grubber into the in-goal area where Beale pounced.

After wholesale changes by both coaches following the halftime break, the Brumbies - down 17-0 at halftime - got their first points through a try to Christian Lealiifano.

Brumbies frontrower John Ulugia then crashed over in the 76th minute and a sweet conversion from Lealiifano made it 17-14.

Waratahs centre Tom Carter and flanker Beau Robinson were late withdrawals due to injury, handing Tahu and Ben Mowen their respective starting jerseys.

In the curtain raiser, the Brumbies second XV beat the junior Waratahs 37-14.

What Aussie team do you reckon will finish the highest placed out of the Australian teams this year?

I think the force. Reds are too starved of talent and suffering from key injuries and talent drain; brumbies are still a year or so off getting back to their former power, and the Tahs and looking decidedly unsettled. The difference for the force could well be whether Mitchell is fired or not, and the resulting effect on the team...
