  • FULL TIME; SUNWOLVES 29, WARATAHS 50 - It's all over at Prince Chichibu Memorial Stadium and it's the Waratahs who earn a bonus-point win on the road with a strong second half showing against a determined Sunwolves outfit. With the hosts not shy of throwing the ball around, the 'Tahs were able to control the game at important sections of the stanza and score points when challenged. The Waratahs eventually running out comfortable 21-point victors in Tokyo.
    '
  • With time ticking down, it's the Waratahs who look as though they'll have the last attacking opportunity of the game with a scrum in the middle of the park. With the 'Tahs getting the penalty, there's a fair bit of push and shove which breaks out before the referee intervenes to quell it.
    76''
  • Foley has a stroke of luck with his conversion attempt as he sets up tightly on the left sideline. Starting it out to the right, the ball curls back perfectly before dropping onto the crossbar and deflecting into the in-goal. The 'Tahs bring up their 50 ..
    74''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION WARATAHS! (Bernard Foley). SUNWOLVES 29, WARATAHS 50.
    73''
  • NSW with a critical response as they elect to move it to their left side with speed. With Gordon providing for Miller, it's a simple case of draw-and-pass before the final ball is presented to Naiyaravoro who proves too big and powerful to pull down from short range.
    72''
  • Try
    TRY WARATAHS! (Taqele Naiyaravoro). SUNWOLVES 29, WARATAHS 48.
    71''
  • Little time is taken with the conversion as Parker easily burrows two more points home from right in front. With 11 minutes remaining, the Waratahs still lead the contest by 14 however the 'Wolves are finishing fast. They couldn't could they??
    69''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION SUNWOLVES! (Hayden Parker). SUNWOLVES 29, WARATAHS 43.
    68''
  • The extra man counts for the Sunwolves as they set an attacking scrum and feign to go right side. With the Waratahs defensive line shifting to that side, a beautiful inside ball sees Himeno tucking it under his wing in order to rumble over from four metres out. Sunwolves are coming...
    67''
  • Try
    TRY SUNWOLVES! (Kazuki Himeno!). SUNWOLVES 27, WARATAHS 43.
    66''
  • The hosts continue to heap pressure on the Waratahs defensive line as open play sees the ball five metres short. With Hooper wanting to hold play up as best he can, he commits a pretty cynical foul and is duly sin-binned for his role. Massive juncture of the game coming up right now.
    64''
  • Yellow Card
    YELLOW CARD WARATAHS! (Michael Hooper).
    63''
  • Amazing attack from the 'Wolves who hit with speed and venom on the counter. With Matsushima splitting the defensive line, the hosts open up a three on one overlap before Himeno's effort to stretch out sees him held up by Foketi. Sunwolves still well in the contest with 20 minutes to go.
    60''
  • There is a hive of activity on both benches. It appears a swag of changes on their way.
    57''
  • Enormous pressure from both sides at scrum time as the 'Wolves knock on 11 metres short. With a hefty push, their front row manage to turn the 'Tahs before NSW get their revenge against the feed on the very next scrum. An infrigement then sees the Waratahs able to clear towards touch.
    55''
