Foley’s late penalty gives Waratahs first Super Rugby title





SYDNEY: Bernard Foley kicked a penalty a minute from time to give the New South Wales Waratahs their first Super Rugby title with a 33-32 victory over the seven-time champion Canterbury Crusaders in a thrilling final on Saturday. The Waratahs had two tries from centre Adam Ashley-Cooper but it was the boot of Foley, who converted one try and kicked seven penalties in total that gave the Waratahs their first win in a decade against the New Zealanders. The Crusaders, who were seeking their first title in six years, had tries from flanker Matt Todd and winger Nemani Nadolo, his 12th of the season, along with 20 points from the boot of flyhalf Colin Slade and two from Dan Carter.
