6:30 am on 13 March 2010

Winger Drew Mitchell scored four tries as the New South Wales Waratahs celebrated captain Phil Waugh's record-breaking appearance with a 73-12 victory over the Lions in a Super rugby match in Sydney.

Waugh made his 119th appearance for New South Wales, passing former halfback Chris Whitaker's previous mark of 118 matches.

Mitchell also became the first New South Wales player to score four tries in a Super rugby game, while the Waratahs scored their most points in a match and exceeded their largest winning margin in the competition.
