    Cape Town - The Waratahs have beaten the Hurricanes in a thrilling cross-Tasman Vodacom Super Rugby clash in Sydney on Saturday.

    The Waratahs scored five tries through wing Rob Horne, flank Dave Dennis, flyhalf Bernard Foley, wing Matt Carraro and replacement forward Stephen Hoiles. Foley was also on target with four conversions and  two penalties for a personal haul of 19 points.

    The Hurricanes replied with three tries by prop Jeffery Toomaga-Allen, flyhalf Beauden Barrett and wing Julian Savea. Barrett added all three conversions and three penalties for a personal haul of 20 points to extend his lead atop the leading points scorers' charts.
