Super Rugby Highlights: Highlanders v Waratahs

Highlanders remain in play-off contention after a 49-12 thrashing of the Waratahs, who are now out of the post-season picture. Needing a bonus-point win to remain in contention, Highlanders charged out to a 42-12 half-time lead in Wellington against opponents minus several of their Australia internationals as part of the Wallabies' World Cup preparations. Josh McKay, Tevita Li, Thomas Franklin, Waisake Naholo and Teihorangi Walden all crossed for the hosts, while their pack also forced a penalty try in the 35th minute. Josh Ioane was succesful with five of his attempts at the posts but the high-scoring Highlanders eased off after the interval, Rob Thompson eventually adding to their points tally in the 80th minute with a try that Elliot Dixon converted.
