Watch: Israel Folau And Kurtley Beale Combine To Gift An ‘Own-Try’ To The Rebels

The Waratahs got back to winning ways this weekend after producing a remarkable comeback to emerge 51-27 winners against the Melbourne Rebels in Sydney at a sun-kissed Allianz Stadium in Sydney.

At the end of the second-half, the Waratahs found themselves 3-20 down but they got a lifeline before the halftime whistle blew when Lalakai Foketi got their first try.

The Tahs then put on five tries in the second half to get their second win of the season after their opening round victory against the Stormers – Daryl Gibson’s side lost to the Jaguares last weekend before drawing with the Sharks in South Africa the week beforehand.

It was safe to say the home side were far from their best in the first half and their performance was littered with errors which was summed up by the almost comical build-up to the Rebels’ first try.

The rebels were attacking down the left wing only for Folau to intercept the final pass, the Wallaby star the flung a pass to the supporting Kurtley Beale. Beale couldn’t hold the pass and the ball flew up into the air only for Folau to knock it into the path of Tom English.

The outside centre couldn’t believe his luck as he ran in for one of the easiest tries he will ever score.
