Bernard Foley has broken the Super Rugby pointscoring record for the NSW Waratahs, but a costly late missed penalty has condemned his side to a 20-19 opening-round loss to the Hurricanes in Sydney.

Foley, who surpassed Matthew Burke's record of 959 points with a third-minute penalty goal at Brookvale Oval, had landed all five of his earlier attempts on Saturday night.

But with just over a minute left, the normally reliable pressure kicker failed to land a penalty from just beyond 30 metres, to the horror of most of the 17,111 sellout crowd.

"Into the wind it probably exaggerates, if you have a fade or a draw," Foley said after the game.

The Waratahs could hardly complain about the result as they had little ball in the last 20 minutes and lived on their nerves.

The Hurricanes trailed 19-13 but had two tries disallowed in that period.

"We lacked sustained periods of time with the ball, whether we lost it in lineout, lost it in phase play," Tahs' coach Daryl Gibson said.
