Waratahs captain Michael Hooper says that Sydney based Super Rugby franchise let themselves down by not capitalizing on their momentum when they had it.

“When we do get the momentum, (it’s) capitalizing on that”, said Hooper.

“That’s the biggest growth for us and that’s what we need to work on.”

Waratahs head coach Daryl Gibson pin pointed where the opportunity to turn the game over went begging.

“We got ourselves back in the game… we were right back up in their area putting them under pressure”, NSW Waratahs coach Daryl Gibson reflected.

“I thought at times our intent and our defensive pressure was very good. We were getting up and really causing some havoc.”

“Taqele came on, and he got us back in the game”, Gibson admitted.

“The momentum really swung at that point and that’s the disappointing thing that we failed to capitalize on the first time in the game we had some real pressure on them.”

Captain Michael Hooper kept his head up high in the wake of tonight’s loss.

“I’m proud of the guys to get back in the contest and not switch off when we did go 12 (points) down”, said Hooper.

“When we do get the momentum, (it’s) capitalizing on that. That’s the biggest growth for us and that’s what we need to work on.”
