The Waratahs and the Rebels have played each other three times in the history of Super Rugby and the Waratahs have won all three matches.
We are waiting for the kick off. There is a minute's silence before the kick off and The Last Post is played.
0.01: The Waratahs kick off and we are underway.
0.26: Adam Ashley-Cooper passes the inside ball to Bernard Foley after the kick off and Foley scores - TRY!!
1.00: Brendan McKibbin adds the conversion and the Waratahs have the perfect start.
4.00: After some aerial ping pong the Waratahs out the ball into touch.
8.00: The Rebels win a penalty so Danny Cipriani takes the kick from the half way line. It turns out to be a shocker and he misses by some distance.
9.00: The Waratahs win a penalty so Brendan McKibbin takes the kick and slots it.
14.00: The Rebels concede a free kick from a Rebels line out so Berrick Barnes takes a quick kick and sends the ball well downfield. It rolls into touch so the Rebels get the line out.
15.00: The Waratahs win the line out and Dave Dennis dives for the line but is just short. The Waratahs move the ball wide but we get called back for Michael Lipman being offside. The Waratahs will kick for goal.
16.00: McKibbin nails the penalty and extends the lead.
19.00: The Waratahs win a penalty but instead of going for posts they go for the line out.
22.00: They win the line out and set up the maul and drive over the line. TRY! Ged Robinson is the tryscorer and its the first try scored by a Rebels player against the Waratahs as their only other try was a penalty try.
23.00: James O'Connor takes the conversion and it goes in off the posts.
28.00: Waratahs win a line out and go through the phases with pick and drives. They go through 10 phases and then Barnes goes for the drop goal. He misses and we go back for the penalty.
29.00: McKibbin takes the shot and nails it.
33.00: The Rebels try to clear the ball from a ruck but referee Kaplan gets in the way so we go back for a scrum. Michael Lipman comes off limping for the Rebels.
36.00: The Rebels are winning the territory battle here and the Waratahs seem happy to defend. It's lots of slow play and kicking from the Waratahs.
38.00: The Rebels are holding on to the ball and are playing most of the game between the Waratahs half way line and the Waratahs 25m line.
39.00: The Rebels get to the Waratahs 5m line and continue to go through the phases. 12 phases so far. They get to 14 phases and then they knock on.
40.5: The siren sounds but we have time for the scrum. The ball is lost so they have to get another ball which wastes a minute. Penalty to the Waratahs so McKibbin kicks the ball into touch. It's half time.
The half time score was Waratahs 16 Rebels 7
The second half is underway.
41.00: Sekope Kepu makes a break but the Rebels stop him. The Waratahs however keep the ball alive and keep moving it forward. They lose it forward.
43.00: Rodney Blake comes off and is replaced by Jono Owen. Waratahs win a 5m line out and Tatafu Polota-Nau scores after a quick pass from Wycliff Palu. TRY!
46.00: Brendan McKibbin adds the conversion.
50.00: second half possession is Waratahs 74 % Waratahs territory 33%
54.00: Brendan McKibbin goes down injured as does James O'Connor so we have a break in play. O'Connor is the worst as he got a knee in the chest from Berrick Barnes in the air.
57.00: Waratahs slowly going through the phases and Rob Horne sees a gap from 5m out and takes it to score. TRY!!

64.00: Kurtley Beale adds the conversion.
69.00: Rob Horne comes back on for the Waratahs. Rebels scored one try while he was out.
72.00: Waratahs should be going for the bonus point try but are not showing much urgency at all.

74.00: Julian Huxley takes the conversion and nails it.
78.00: The Waratahs slip through the Rebels defence but they can't finish to score the bonus point try. They do however set up a 5m line out.
79.00: Waratahs win the line out and attack in the 5m danger zone. The Rebels are caught offside so the Waratahs get a penalty. And another one as the Waratahs try to find a way through.
