Thanks for tuning in!

In next weekend's action, the Stormers have a bye, while the Waratahs host the Cheetahs in Sydney.

Waratahs captain Michael Hooper.

30 Apr 20:59

Well done to the Waratahs, who made full use of their one-man advantage.

But there's no doubt this game will be remembered for the contentious red card handed out to Leolin Zas.

It's sad to see a decision like that spoil a great spectacle.

56'- Technically the referee may have been right.

Zas did slip, but according to the referee, he never has a chance to catch the high ball. And because Foley then fell on his neck area, it warranted a red card.

But what a joke this game of rugby has become... and that's my view...

30 Apr 20:31
56'- Meanwhile, amidst all that, Foley has missed a shot at goal...
30 Apr 20:30
