Eddie’s Reds rock Tahs

Eddie Jones has finally won a game again, his Reds team thumping rivals New South Wales in the Australian Provincial Championship.

The Reds, hammered by the Force a week ago, scored six tries to two in a 39-17 victory. On Saturday the Brumbies had dealt with the Force to go top of the table.

Peter Hewat gave the Waratahs an early lead, but the Reds scored 39 unanswered points before two late tries flattered the Tahs.

The Brumbies have eight points from two matches, with the Reds and Force level on five points. The Tahs have just one point with one round of matches to go.
