MATCH STATS

THE Waratahs threw away their chance at upsetting the form team of the competition with an error-riddled second-half performance against the Chiefs in Hamilton last night.

After dominating possession and forcing the New Zealanders to tackle for their lives in the first half, the Waratahs made simple error after simple error to allow the competition's most unpredictable back line to run away with the game, and any hope of a restful bye.
