Rebels v Brumbies - Live
Full Time Rebels 13 Brumbies 30
80 The Rebels are trying hard to finish on a high and are camped inside the Brumbies' 22 until Rory Sidey knocks on a pass from Tom English. The final whistle goes shortly after this and the visitors celebrate another win. The Canberra-based side continue with their fine start to the season and are now sitting at the top of the table. They deserve this victory, as they were in total control for most od the second half. The Rebels ran out of steam after a good start and will have to improve considerably if they want to be amongst the contenders for the title.
77 The Brumbies are in control of this match and both forwards and backs are throwing the ball around at leisure. The Rebels get out of jail when Coleman knocks on a pass from Scott Fardy close to the halfway mark.
74 TRY, BRUMBIES, COLEMAN! 13-30. Robbie Coleman rounds off in the right-hand corner, with two defenders on his back, after collecting a pass in space from White.
71 The Rebels are awarded a penalty on their five-metre line when Ben Alexander is penalised for illegal scrummaging.
70 YELLOW CARD, REBELS, SAFFY! Jarrod Saffy, who is on the field for all of five minutes, is given his marching orders when he slows the ball down deliberately at a ruck close to his try-line.
68 Pyle holds onto the ball on the ground and from the resulting penalty, the Brumbies go on the attack from a line-out on the Rebels' 22-metre line.
66 The Brumbies string six phases together until the ball goes wide to Joe Tomane, who is tackled into touch by Lachlan Mitchell.
63 CONVERSION, BRUMBIES, LEALIIFANO! 13-25. Lealiifano adds the extras which means the Rebels must score twice if they want to win this game.
62 TRY, BRUMBIES, MOWEN! 13-23. Ben Mowen pounces on aloose ball, after Toomua launches a bomb which Alex Rokobaro knocks on, and sets off on a 40-metre run before scoring in the left-hand corner!
59 The Rebels are trying desperately to get back into the match. They carry the ball strongly with their forwards but make little headway as the Brumbies defence meet them head on!
57 PENALTY, BRUMBIES, LEALIIFANO! 13-18. Lealiifano adds another three-pointer after Scott Higginbotham goes offside at a ruck.
54 Nic White wastes a golden opportunity when he attempts a box kick at a ruck just outside the Rebels' 22. Unfortunately for him his effort sails directly into touch!
52 The Rebels attack out wide but Lachlan Mitchell fails to hold onto a difficult pass from Laurie Weeks.
50 The Rebels gain a reprieve when the Brumbies' front-row is penalised for a scrum infringement deep inside the hosts' 22.
48 The Brumbies attack out wide through Rathbone who cuts through the Rebels' defence like the proverbial hot knife through butter! He is stopped by O'Connor but manages to offload to the on-rushing Lealiifano. The inside centre knocks on when he is tackled by Inman!
45 PENALTY, BRUMBIES, LEALIIFANO! 13-15. Christian Leallifano gives the Brumbies the lead after Hugh Pyle fails to roll away at a ruck.
42 Ben Mowen is pinned for not rolling away at a ruck close to the halfway line. O'Connor puts the ball out just outside the Brumbies' 22.
40 Kurtley Beale gets the second half started! Peter Kimlin gathers his kick just outside the Brumbies 22 and goes to ground under a mass of bodies.
Half Time Rebels 13 Brumbies 12
40 The Brumbies attack off the scrum and bring Rathbone into play. The wing carries powerfully but knocks on when he makes contact. That is the final act of the half and both sides head into the sheds. It's been an entertaining game with both sides showing a willingness to run the ball. If they continue in this vein we could see a high-scoring second half.
39 The Brumbies keep it tight amongst their forwards and string eight phases together before their counterparts infringe by not rolling away at a ruck. Brumbies skipper Ben Mowen calls for a scrum on the hosts' five-metre line.
37 TRY, BRUMBIES, RATHBONE! 13-12. Clyde Rathbone scores in the corner after receiving a simple pass from Scott Fardy. The real hero, however, is Jesse Mogg, who beats three players, in the build-up, before being stopped just short of the try-line!
34 PENALTY, REBELS, O'CONNOR! 13-7. O'Connor adds the extras after Palmer is penalised for not rolling away on the ground.
31 The Brumbies' forwards fail to roll away at a ruck and O'Connor opts to kick for touch. His effort goes into touch 10 metres from the visitors' try-line.
28 The Rebels are under the cosh inside their 22 after Toomua hoofs a ball ahead. Luke Jones does well when he scoops up the loose ball before Beale comes to the rescue with a kick into touch.
26 O'Connor misses his second penalty attempt after Scott Fardy is penalised for going off his feet at a ruck.
24 David Pocock is pinned for obstruction at a line-out inside the Rebels' 22. O'Connor puts the resulting penalty kick into touch 15 metres from the halfway mark.
21 Scott Fuglistaller goes off his feet at a ruck and Toomua puts his team on the attack with a penalty kick which sails into touch five metres from the hosts' try-line.
19 CONVERSION, REBELS, O'CONNOR! 10-7. O'Connor adds the two-pointer which puts his side further in front!
18 TRY, REBELS, HIGGINBOTHAM! 8-7. Scott Higginbotham scores under the posts after running onto a pass from O'Connor, who beats four defenders in the build-up!
17 Stephen Moore takes the ball into contact in midfield but is knocked backwards by a text-book tackle from Mitch Inman!
14 PENALTY, REBELS, O'CONNOR! 3-7. James O'Connor makes no mistake from the kicking tee after Dan Palmer is pinned for side-entry at a ruck.
11 The Rebels are on the attack inside the Brumbies' half. They set up five phases before Beale is put into space by a Lachlan Mitchell offload. Beale sets off towards the try-line but is jockeyed into touch by Joe Tomane deep inside the Brumbies' 22.
9 James O'Connor gets a chance to add his side's first points after Stephen Moore and Ben Mowen are penalised for going off their feet at a ruck but the full-back's effort is wide of the uprights!
6 CONVERSION, BRUMBIES, LEALIIFANO! 0-7. Christian Lealiifano adds the extras to extend his side's lead!
5 TRY, BRUMBIES, MOGG! 0-5. Jesse Mogg gets the ball just inside his half and sets off down the touchline. He kicks ahead and beats Nick Phipps to the ball behind the try-line. What a great try!
3 The Rebels are awarded a penalty within goal-kicking range but O'Connor kicks for touch and puts it out eight metres from the Brumbies' try-line.
Kickoff Matt Toomua gets us underway! His kick is gathered by Luke Jones who immediately goes to ground. The Rebels launch an attack from inside their 22 with James O'Connor and Kurtley Beale prominent! They eventually commit a handling error on the edge of the Brumbies' 22. What a start!
Team news Brumbies coach Jake White has made just one change to his run-on side with Joe Tomane replacing the injured Henry Speight on the right wing. Speight sits out this match after suffering bruising to his ribs in last weekend's win over the Reds.
Team news Rebels boss Damien Hill has rewarded his troops for their win over the Force by naming the same matchday 22 for today's match.
Welcome Hello and welcome to the AAMI Stadium in Melbourne for this Super Rugby hit out between our hosts the Rebels and the Brumbies.
