1.00: PEEEEP! We are (back) underway at WIN Stadium, Wollongong.

2.00: The chiefs are inside the Waratahs’ 22; they win a penalty after a long advantage.

2.00: PENALTY! Aaron Cruden squeezes his kick inside the right-hand post. 0-3

5.00: Another penalty sees Cruden boot the ball into the opposition’s 22.

7.00: PENALTY! Cruden doubles his side’s lead with another penalty. 6-0

9.00: It’s all chiefs so far in Wollongong, they have had all the ball, playing mostly inside their host’s half.

11.00: Warren Gatland’s men keep the Chiefs pinned back inside their half through the kicking of their halfback.

13.00: NSW is leaking penalties at almost every breakdown.

16.00: MISS! Cruden’s kick is off-target. 0-6

18.00: Michael Hooper gives away possession with a knock-on off his head. What? Another scrum-penalty goes against the home team. It’s six to one inside half an hour.

21.00: TRY! Shaun Stevenson gets the game’s first try in the corner after Solomon Alaimalo, playing fullback, started the attack with a mini-break through several defenders. 0-11

22.00: CONVERSION! Cruden slots the wide conversion. 0-13

24.00: Waratahs need to get into this game.

27.00: CONVERSION! The kick is good. 7-13

30.00: Desperate defence by the Chiefs; Hooper thinks he is over, but he is held-up.

32.00: NSW has fought back and has an attacking scrum near the posts.

33.00: TRY! Jack Dempsey bashes his way over the chalk to make it a one-point ball-game. The TMO checked for grounding and a forward pass in the build-up. 12-13

33.00: CONVERSION! Harrison’s kick is good, and the ‘Tahs have the lead. 14-13

35.00: We have a break in play before Will Harrison kicks a penalty to halfway. The ‘Tahs have fought back, and look to be in control as all the momentum is with them.

37.00: Cruden’s last-ditch tackle puts Alex Newsome into touch.

39.00: Harrison goes to the air. Alaimalo gathers and kick-starts a counter-attack from halfway. The ball is lost forward before being booted back to the Chiefs. New South Wales, somehow, regather possession, and they attack.

65.00: CONVERSION! The kick is good. 14-46

69.00: The ‘Tahs look dead on their feet. They have a couple of opportunities, but cannot break the Chiefs sturdy defence.

73.00: The clock is ticking down; we have a couple of reset scrums.

75.00: Chiefs have taken their foot off the gas in the closing stages; who can blame them, although, they might want a half-century.
