Rugby Union - Highlanders chop down Waratahs to set up all NZ final– The well drilled Otago Highlanders upset defending champions NSW Waratahs 35-17 to set up an all-New Zealand Super Rugby final in Sydney on Saturday. The Highlanders executed their game plan to perfection to throw the Waratahs out of their playing rhythm, scoring five tries to one after leading 15-14 at half-time. Otago will face favourites Wellington Hurricanes in the final next weekend after the Canes knocked out the other remaining Australian side ACT Brumbies 29-9 earlier in the Kiwi capital.
