Waratahs beat Brumbies 26-8 in Super Rugby semi

SYDNEY (AP) -- The New South Wales Waratahs will host the Crusaders in the Super Rugby final after beating the ACT Brumbies 26-8 in a tense all-Australian semifinal on Saturday.

Flyhalf Bernard Foley scored a spectacular late try among a personal tally of 16 points as the Waratahs reached the final for the third time and won the right to host the championship decider for the first time in their history.

New South Wales scored an opportunist try in each half to lead 11-8 at halftime and 19-8 before Foley's 78th minute clincher.

Winger Alofa Alofa scored an intercept try in the third minute to give the Waratahs a lead they never relinquished and center Kurtley Beale stripped the ball from an opponent to score a decisive try after 48 minutes.
