It was every bit the classic that Super Rugby fans could have hoped for on Saturday as the Waratahs claimed their maiden championship with a 33-32 victory over seven-time winners the Crusaders.

A last-gasp Bernard Foley penalty gave the New South Wales hosts their one-point triumph, capitalising on their minor championship win with a trophy of much greater significance.

We break down some of the biggest winners and losers from the epic encounter, in both an individual and team-based capacity.
