Waratahs run in six tries to get Super Rugby season back on track versus Force

The Waratahs ran in six tries to get their Super Rugby season back on track with a comprehensive 49-13 victory over the Western Force in Perth.

The New South Wales outfit suffered back-to-back home defeats in their previous two outings but scores from Rob Horne, Nick Phipps, Israel Folau, Reece Robinson, Angus Ta'avao and Jed Holloway - plus 19 points from the boot of Bernard Foley - eased them past the Force.

A second-minute penalty from Peter Grant gave the hosts an early lead but the Waratahs took control after Semisi Masirewa was sin-binned and restricted the struggling Force to only one more Grant three-pointer and Harry Scoble's converted try.
