    Warratahs have been rattled all second half. Losing all your line outs will actually kill you though.




    This, I think the Highlanders have had a clear game plan and are sticking to it.

    we just haven't won the physical contest tonight and we really haven't looked like we believe we could win it since about the 30 minute mark

    well done to the highlanders for taking us into our 22, when we were confident we would have confidently run from the back for points, but tonight we've just missed the mark

    Obviously almost everything is to the referees discretion, but I thought that the rewarding of a penalty try should always* be accompanied by a yellow card.

    *For scrums, the yellow card normally seems to come one scrum before the penalty try.

    Tahs don't deserve to win it this year. Last year they were on a n upwards trajectory and got better all the way through.

    This year they have gone up and down with no discernible over all improvement.

    I've posted in numerous threads about the importance of a strong lineout and I get told I'm overstating it every time.

    Phipps off for McKibbin. Phipps has been way too wayward this game.

    Dennis off for Chapman.

    Don't think either of those changes will win the game for the Tahs.

    Don't get Kearns' whining, the Highlanders have just been better in the second half.

    OMG! Even better than winning another Tahs lineout, Potgeiter absolutely clattered Foley.

    Penalty try or no penalty try, the Waratahs' set piece has been shocking.

    Another lineout stolen.

    Kearns uses the term "ours".

    Droppie over, 13 point gap.

    The Tards' lineout tonight reminds me of the Stormers last week

    That's the way I saw it. Thought the yellow was probably about right but no way was it worth a penalty try.

    Highlanders lineout won it for them IMO, it enabled them to play a heavily territory based game and it worked out well

    Well played Highlanders, the two best teams by far go thru to the final. Kiwis will feel natural order has been restored. I suspect we have a long and difficult international season coming up
