80' - The Waratahs pick up a full-house of five points for their victory to move to second in the Australian Conference and fourth in the Overall standings.
The Lions lose their third straight match on tour and fail to pick up a point. They stay bottom of the SA Conference and 14th in the Overall log
80' - Not very pretty from the Lions who become the first SA side to lose this weekend
80' - FULL-TIME IN SYDNEY
The Waratahs win 41-13
80' - ROB HORNE gets his second of the night
Foley adds the CONVERSION
80' - Siren sounds in Sydney but the Waratahs are on the attack and they SCORE!
80' - Bad omen for the Lions... coach Johan Ackermann has never (in 10 attempts) won in Australia as a player or coach...
The argument equating daytime rugby with skill execution just died at Allianz Stadium - Scotty Stevenson
76' - Even the Twitter-verse has gone quiet on this match!
75' - More poor play from the Lions as the ball spits out the side of the scrum and a huge hole appears in the Waratahs' backline, but the ball is spilled forward and the Waratahs clear up to halfway
73' - My SuperBru prediction will be helped by a Lions try - but not to be as the Lions knock on while on attack
The match has lost its structure completely now
72' - Really messy by both sides now as the seconds tick away until full-time.
The Waratahs are looking for back-to-back wins for the first time since Weeks 2 and 3
70' - 10 minutes to play in Sydney
68' - More scrappy play from the Lions as they look to end the match on a high
Last weekend against the Highlanders they looked down and out at half-time but mounted a stirring comeback
Not so much today...
QUADE COOPER OUT
While things are looking good for the Waratahs, they aren't as rosy for the Reds, Wallabies and Quade Cooper who has just been diagnosed with grade-3 AC shoulder joint injury which will rule him out of the mid-year Test series against France - and possibly the Rugby Championship
65' - Waratahs have the match in the bag and they start to ring the changes with a short turnaround until their next match in Week 15 against the Rebels - next Friday
63' - Things just got trickier for the Lions with the introduction of former Bulls loose forward Jacques Potgieter...
61' - Foley has the chance to stretch the Waratahs' lead - and he does so!
Penalty to Foley - his sixth successful kick of the match - and the Waratahs are out to a 34-13 lead after 61 minutes
57' - And just like Rob Horne looks for all money that he'll score his second try of the night, but he's cut down from behind and loses the ball forward...
55' - Scrappy play from both sides as the Lions count down the minutes until they will be back to 15 men
BUT WHEN THE LIONS ARE DOWN AT LEAST WE HAVE THE SHARKS!
The Sharks' two centurions from yesterday...
Tahs now cashing in on those meters run and carries made in the first half. More genius from Beale, who has been simply outstanding today - Front Row Grunt
50' - Foley adds the CONVERSION
Waratahs out to a 31-13 lead after 50 minutes
No way back for the Lions today I'm afraid...
DID YOU KNOW?

Kurtley Beale scores his first half try (Twitter)
44' - Foley adds the CONVERSION
Waratahs lead 24-13 after 44 minutes
42' - Oh dear, poor defence after the break from the Lions sees wing ROB HORNE go in under the posts for the Waratahs' third try of the match.
Chrysander Botha the main culprit for the Lions
Too early to call it game over for the Lions... ?
42' - TRY to the Waratahs!

40' - HALF-TIME in Sydney
Waratahs lead 17-13
40' - The half-time siren sounds with the Waratahs on attack, but amounts to nothing
38' - But it amounts to nothing as the Lions put in a grubber for the backline to chase but the Waratahs beat them to the ball...
37' - Yet another penalty to the Lions. Penalties mounting against the Waratahs. Surprised that the referee hasn't had a sterner word with 'Tahs skipper Dave Dennis
