  • Print

MELBOURNE, Australia - Israel Folau equaled the franchise record with his 10th try of the season as the New South Wales Waratahs beat the Melbourne Rebels 41-19 in Super Rugby on Friday to top the Australian conference.

Folau touched down for the first time in three matches to equal Peter Hewat's season record for the Waratahs, who scored six tries to one, enlarging their tally to 16 tries from their last three matches, and rise into second place on the overall ladder.

The Rebels, bogged in 11th place near the end of a season in which they played well above that standing, stayed close to the Waratahs for three quarters of the match, closing to 24-19 with a 59th-minute try to Telusa Veainu.

They were eventually swamped by second-half tries to Michael Hooper, Kurtley Beale, Brendan McKibbin and Folau.
