WARATAHS EDGE OUT SPIR­ITED REDS

Fiji Sun - - Sport -

Bris­bane: The Waratahs bounced back from suc­ces­sive losses to beat the Reds 15-13 in a hard-fought derby in Bris­bane yes­ter­day. The Sydneysiders outscored their hosts two tries to one with Is­rael Fo­lau cross­ing for both his side’s five-point­ers. Their Round One de­feat to the Waratahs, fur­ther losses to the West­ern Force and Rebels and last week­end’s draw with the Blues has left the Reds sea­son in dis­ar­ray, while the Waratahs knew that vic­tory would keep them in touch with the Brumbies and Rebels at the top of the Aus­tralian Con­fer­ence. The win means they are still in third place on their con­fer­ence ta­ble, al­beit three points adrift of the sec­ond-placed Rebels and with a game in hand, while the Reds are still lan­guish­ing at the bot­tom of the stand­ings just a point be­hind the Force, who are in fourth place.
