Tahs end tour with win


October 09, 2006

THE New South Wales finished its 2006 development tour on a high with a hard fought, 20-17 victory over Leinster A in Dublin today (AEST).

With former skipper Chris Whitaker – now plying his trade with Leinster – looking on from the sidelines, the Waratahs fought their way back after falling behind on three separate occasions, before edging ahead with a penalty 12 minutes from time.

After Lachlan Turner gave the Waratahs an early 3-0 lead with a penalty goal, Leinster flanker Niall Ronan got on the end of a rolling maul to score the first try of the match.

The conversion and a Fergus McFadden penalty took Leinster to a 10-3 lead, but the Waratahs hit back through winger Pat McCabe, who crashed over in the 38th minute for the scores to be 10-10 at the break.

A try to fullback Ross McCarron in the seventh minute of the second half briefly gave Leinster the advantage, but it was one of the few times the home side was sighted in the Waratahs' 50.

The visitor eventually barged its way over through centre Clint Eadie, Turner's conversion tying it up at 17-all.

With weight of territory against it, the home side's tiring forwards cracked, particularly after replacement hooker Luke Fitzgerald was yellow-carded for a professional foul.

From the penalty, Daniel Halangahu stepped up to nail the winner.
