Super Rugby: Rebels edge Waratahs 24-22

Winger Tom English's second try of the night with five minutes remaining gave the Melbourne Rebels a 24-22 win Friday over the New South Wales Waratahs in Super Rugby.
The try followed sustained pressure by the Waratahs over 22 phases and after the visitors had dominated play for much of the final 20 minutes.
Replacement flyhalf Brendan McKibbin missed a penalty goal attempt with two minutes remaining that would have given the Waratahs the win.
It was the Rebels first win over the Waratahs in six matches.
