    Foley wants to end season with a bang

    Cape Town - Waratahs flyhalf Bernard Foley says his side are playing for just as much pride as the Force when they meet on Saturday in Perth.

    Either the Force or Rebels will be axed from Super Rugby next season. It is also Force legend Matt Hodgson's last game for the club as he will retire at the end of the season.

    But the Waratahs, according to Foley, have just as much to play for with Dean Mumm and Rob Horne both playing their last games for the franchise.

    "I don't think the emotion, the pride, the passion, just belongs to them," Foley told the Canberra Times.

    "For us, we've got as much to play for in a season that hasn't gone our way, the results haven't gone the way we wanted them.

    "We've spoken about finishing the season off well, really putting an exclamation mark on what's been a challenging season.

    "That emotion, or that passion, they don't have a mortgage on it, just because it could be their last game or they've got the home crowd."

    Meanwhile, Foley has rubbished rumours that the Waratahs players want coach Daryl Gibson out of his role.

    "I can squash all rumours here, there's no chat of player dispute or questioning Daryl," he said.

    "He has the complete understanding and complete support of the playing squad."
