A 79th-minute penalty from Bernard Foley has snatched a 33-32 victory for NSW Waratahs over the Crusaders in the Super Rugby final in Sydney.

It's a first Super-era win for the Tahs as they came home stronger than the Christchurch-based seven-time Champions  at the Olympic Stadium. 

Foley showed nerves of steel after he potted a 45m kick after an infringement from All Blacks captain Richie McCaw game him the chance to be a hero at the death.

Earlier the Tahs had blown a 14-point lead and were looking odds on to lose their third finals match to the Crusaders. 

But Foley picked a good day to be on target kicking a conversion and seven penalties for 23 points while Adam Ashley-Cooper managed two tries in the thrilling win witnessed by 62,000 supporters, the biggest crowd in Super Rugby history.
