  • A completely uninspiring performance from the Reds! They were never in the game and never looked like doing anything special. Their night consisted of copious amounts of errors and mistakes. They have a lot of work to do. The Tahs did play well though and definitely flexed their muscles tonight to show that they are the Top Australian candidate this year. Under coach Michael Cheika this Tahs outfit is looking good and are definitely contenders for a semi-final berth.

  • And that's that! The biggest ever winning margin for the Tahs over the Reds.

  • PENALTY, TAHS, FOLEY, 32-5. Solid kick from Foley as he stretches the lead to 27 points!

  • Tahs now build nicely again and eventually win a penalty in a kickable position. Foley will have a shot from about 30m out.

  • Reds win a penalty on the half way line and Cooper sets up a line out on the 22m. the game is out of reach now but will want to finish strongly. They knock on as another attack fails to bring anything. Ashley-Cooper finds space on the wing and kicks ahead! unfortunately for him the ball rolls out! Reds would have been in trouble there.

  • Reds still not able to string anything together in this half. Eventually Aidan Toua plays some sensible rugby and puts in a good kick which goes out 5m before the Tahs try line.

  • reds win a penalty as Kepu doesn't release player on the ground. The Reds tap and go and make good ground as they work there way into the Tahs 22m. They win another penalty for the Tahs being offside. They take it quickly again but the Tahs turn it over and Foley relieves the pressure with a clearance kick.

  • Finally some good play from the Reds as Ben Tapuai makes a clean break! he gets pulled up short! Tahs turn it over but knock it on. Reds have possession now just outside the Tahs 22m. Reds eventually get bundled into touch!

  • PENALTY, TAHS, FOLEY, 29-5. No problem for Foley as he extends the lead for the home side!

  • And Alofa Alofa dances his way over the line from 5m out! They go upstairs and the try has been disallowed - obstruction. Tahs still have a penalty as Reds were offside. They taking the 3 points now that they have the bonus point.

  • Two big hits from the Tahs on the Reds! Firstly Palu on Shipperly...then Alofa smashes Anthony Faing'a and wins a penalty in the process! They kick for touch. Cooper puts a great grubber throughf or Folau but just goes into before Israel can get to it. Reds under loads of pressure!

  • So soft from the Reds! They come close with the maul before setting up a ruck. No ones home for the reds and the Tahs simply pick it up and clear!

  • Tahs come in from the side and Reds set up another line out from the penalty.

  • Reds manage to get possession and boot it into the Tahs half. Some good pressure from the reds results in them receiving a penalty. Quade puts the ball out 5m from the tryline to set up an attacking line out. Reds must convert.

  • The Tahs hold onto the ball nicely but are unable to penetrate the reds defense. The woes for the Reds continue as they infringe at the breakdown and Foley kicks into the corner to set up a line out in the Reds 22m

  • The Reds can't do anything right tonight! Simple line out and knock on from Will Genia on receiving the ball from the locks. Scrum Tahs on the half way

  • CONVERSION, FOLEY, 26-5. Tahs scoring with a man down! This could be a big score tonight! Great kick from Foley to add the two points.

  • TRY, TAHS, BEALE, 24-5. Loads of pressure on the Reds from the Tahs at that scrum and they get a penalty! Beale takes it quickly and barges his way over for a try! The Tahs are on fire and have wrapped up a bonus point!

  • Was looking ominous for the Reds but Tahs knock on in a collision and let the Reds off the hook!

  • Tahs win a penalty at the scrum this time and Foley puts them deep into Reds territory! Tahs on attack now in the Reds 22m
