Tahs smash Queensland

Aap
Monday, July 14, 2014

BRISBANE - The Waratahs juggernaut has powered on at Suncorp Stadium but not before the bumbling Queensland Reds exposed a worrying chink in their armour before the Super Rugby finals.

Play-off rivals will have fixed their gaze on NSW's vulnerable line-out which disintegrated under pressure as they registered a seventh straight victory with a record 34-3 win in the interstate grudge match.

The Waratahs deservedly regained the Bob Templeton Cup with the four-try triumph but better teams won't let the minor premiers off the hook like the Reds did numerous times on Saturday night.

It was a Kurtley Beale carve-up early with two tries in three minutes to establish an 11-point buffer as their attack was far more clinical and precise than the injury-ravaged Reds backs — missing Will Genia, Quade Cooper and three more first-choice players.

When NSW had clean ball they looked like world-beaters but when the home side had it their execution and decision making let them down.
