Super Rugby: Tahs Take Out Top Spot With Win Over Highlanders

by Brendan Bradford - With one game still to play in the regular season, the Waratahs have wrapped up top spot on the Super Rugby table. The historic result - the first time the Tahs have topped the Super Rugby ladder - was confirmed with a dominant 44-16 win over the Highlanders, who are placed second in a strong New Zealand conference but were restricted to just one try in front of over 24,000 fans in the afternoon sunshine of Allianz Stadium. The records were falling everywhere.
