43‘ – Ball with the Reds on the S’Wolves 22m line off the knock on, and Paia’aua grubbers through for Daugunu who just can’t regather. As I type, Wright steals it, then gets pinged for holding on. They tap and go, and kick ahead to Stewart, who puts it up in the sky.

Reds: 29
Sunwolves: 13

41‘ – Second half underway

It’s with the Sunwolves on their own 22.

Reds: 29

Try
40‘ – TRY REDS – TANIELA TUPOU

McDermott with the nice lead up work off the dominant Reds scrum. Ball shifts right, and Tupou beats one before reaching out and slamming down for his fourth of the season.

Half time hooter goes as Lance knocks it over from in front.

Reds: 29
Sunwolves: 13

Red Card
36‘ – RED CARD – ED QUIRK

Well this will cause controversy midweek no doubt, and the Sunwolves will play another 40 minutes, like last week, with 14 men.

The call is a closed fist on the face of Hamish Stewart on the ground. The commentators are apoplectic. Will definitely hear more about this.

Reds: 22
Sunwolves: 13

36‘ – How about the run from JP Smith?! He’s been dynamite tonight.

Went straight through the middle of the lineout – in and aways two people before being dragged down 25m out. Ball shifts left, and the Sunwolves eventually usher it into touch off the inside ball from Nabuli.

BPA’s lineout throw is a stinker, and the Sunwolves attack, but eventually knock on through Leitch.

Phew! Catch your breath.

Reds: 22
Sunwolves: 13

34‘ – TRY REDS – JONO LANCE

They’ve added 8, maybe 10 points with a man in the bin.

Ball shifts left to Lance, who shows the ball inside to Tupou, where the third defender buys the dummy. Shimmies through the little hole, and Lance goes 22m untouched to score.

The Reds 15 looks to convert his own try, and doesn’t.

32‘ – Great kick from Stewart in general play, turns the Sunwolves defenders around, and Fujita can only exit to the 22. BPA with the throw in.

Reds: 17
Sunwolves: 13

30‘ – Penalty Goal Reds

Immediately hit back through Lance, Wright with his mits all over it, and it’s thrown over.

Reds: 17
Sunwolves: 13

Yellow Card
28‘ – PENALTY TRY AND YELLOW CARD TO DUNCAN PAIA’AUA

That’s very, very silly. Sunwolves fly down this right edge, and they get it two on one against Paia’aua who slaps down the offload. Leitch would’ve scored in the corner, so they concede a penalty try, and will play with 14 for the next 10.

Reds: 14
Sunwolves: 13

26‘ – Kick ping-pong there, with McDermott’s nice nudge down to the Sunwolves left edge returned by an even better kick from Emery. Reds lineout on the half, and the Sunwolves win it against the throw.

Reds: 14
Sunwolves: 6

Reds vs Sunwolves: Super Rugby live scores, blog

24‘ – TRY REDS – ETO NABULI

20 phases later, and Nabuli is the beneficiary. The break started with Stewart and Higginbotham down the right edge, before some nice link play back inside saw a set of pick and goes that ate easy metres. Eventually, the ball ends up with Paia’aua who shovels a little short ball to a flying Nabuli. He scores untouched.

Lance throws it over.

Reds: 14
Sunwolves: 6

Reds vs Sunwolves: Super Rugby live scores, blog

20‘ – Chance at goal for Jono Lance, it’s a regulation shot – but he pushes it wide. Not one for the highlights reel, that.

Sunwolves 22m drop out with Tupou now.

Reds: 7
Sunwolves: 6

Reds vs Sunwolves: Super Rugby live scores, blog

18‘ – Lineout Reds 35m out.

Lance kicks to the corner, and the Sunwolves can’t exit more than 15m. BPA with the throw to the middle pod as I type.

Reds: 7
Sunwolves: 6

17‘ – Penalty Goal Sunwolves

Deja’ Vu off the pilfer from Little. Parker nails it from 44m.

Reds: 7
Sunwolves: 6

14‘ – Penalty Goal Sunwolves

Tupou slightly offside, and Parker just throws it over off the tee. Has missed two shots all season. Two. Genuinely scarcely believable.

Reds: 7
Sunwolves: 3

13‘ – Sloppy from both sides. Stewart with the exit, and off the return kick, Fujita collected, before a nice counter-ruck from the Reds. Eventually, Tupou spills it on the left edge, and it will be a Sunwolves scrum 28m out on their right hand side.

Reds: 7
Sunwolves: 0

Reds vs Sunwolves: Super Rugby live scores, blog

10‘ – Twin knock-ons for both the Reds and the Sunwolves in the Reds 22, the home side the first culprits.

Sunwolves scrum 15m out – big chance to hit back.

Reds: 7
Sunwolves: 0

5 o’clock somewhere mate!

Enjoy it

7‘ – TRY REDS – LIAM WRIGHT

Too easy for the Reds in the end, they shift left off the penalty advantage, and Lance nearly scores himself. Timu picks and goes, before it ends with Wright, who is pushed over by Paenga-Amosa for the meat pie.

Lance knocks it over from the sideline – nice strike.

Reds: 7
Sunwolves: 0

Reds vs Sunwolves: Super Rugby live scores, blog

4‘ – Good defence from Stewart and Paia’aua on Leitch, and he spills it first phase. Reds with the attacking scrum 22m out, as I type, they win a penalty advantage.

Reds: 0
Sunwolves: 0

4‘ – Nice continuity from the Reds off the turnover from the Sunwolves scrum. It ends after a few phases with McDermott toeing one in behind and into touch, nice settler.

Sunwolves with the first lineout of the night.

Reds: 0

What’s the beer of choice tonight Ridds?

Reds vs Sunwolves: Super Rugby live scores, blog

1‘ – Kick Off! Parker gets us underway on a clear night at Suncorp Stadium, and it’s a scrum for the visitors on the right edge early.

Full Time
80‘ – MATCH RESULT: The Waratahs have scored their most ever points in a single game, courtesy of a 77-25 demolition job of a 14-man Sunwolves outfit on Saturday night at Allianz Stadium.

Waratahs: 77
Sunwolves: 25

Try
80‘ – TRY WARATAHS – ALEX NEWSOME

Fill your boots time for Alex Newsome. Midfield scrum, and the scrum wheels right – Gordon changes the point of attack and Foley finds Newsome untouched who dots down.

That is the Tahs 12th, and the highest score in their franchise’s history. Records tumbling everywhere.

Foley misses the conversion.
