CAPE TOWN, South Africa (AP) -- The Waratahs moved up to third in the Super Rugby table and condemned the Stormers to their fifth straight defeat as they ran out 22-11 winners at Newlands on Saturday.

In a scrappy encounter that was short on quality, New South Wales found that maintaining discipline and kicking penalties was enough to emerge with the points.

Nick Phipps' opportunistic try and Kobus van Wyk's first score for the Stormers were the only tries of the game, so it was the five penalties from Bernard Foley and Kurtley Beale that proved decisive for the Waratahs.

An injury-hit Stormers unit had hoped to return to winning ways after a disastrous tour of Australasia, but remain bottom of the table with just one win from seven games.
