Penalty80 PENALTY, BRUMBIES, LEALIIFANO! 23-20: IT'S OVER! The Brumbies win in dramatic fashion as Lealiifano slots the long-range penalty, a fine strike and it condemns the Bulls to another loss on tour. Late drama in Canberra.

78 TRY, BULLS, ENGLEBRECHT! 20-20: A breakaway score! Kruger steals the ball in the tackle, wide pass to Englebrecht who shows some raw pace down the left-hand touchline. Tracked by Speight who stops him from running under the posts. Steyn brilliantly converts. Game on!

50 Smart hands from the Brumbies on attack, Toomua pulling the strings as Kimlin charges into the 22. Lots of momentum but it's a penalty at the breakdown against the hosts.

TRY48 TRY, BULLS, VISSER! 14-10: Bulls show plenty of attacking intent early on, playing with more width and a better tempo too. Brumbies go offside, Kirchner in space down the right with Mapoe.

8 Steyn's shot at goal drifts wide to the left. Brumbies dropout, long kick from Kirchner swirls in the air and the Bulls regather possession and attack, testing the hosts defence. Penalty Brumbies, good work from Oosthuizen and Speight on the deck.

5 Ralepelle throws in, Bulls trying to set up a maul in the Brumbies half. They win the penalty and Steyn will go for goal here.

3 Kirchner clears from his 22 just up to halfway. Loose lineout and George Smith mops it up for the Brumbies, White grubbering in behind as the Bulls run from deep. Serfontein loses the ball in the tackle but it goes backwards, penalty Bulls.
