Brumbies v Hurricanes - Live

Last updated: 31st May 2013  

Full Time Brumbies 30 Hurricanes 23

80 From a ruck 10 metres outside their 22, White passes the ball to Toomua, who puts it into touch when the hooter sounds. The final whistle goes and this win moves the Brumbies to the top of the standings! Credit to the visitors who fought back well and made things difficult in the closing minutes. They were in this match until the end and came close to, at least, gaining a draw. But in the end, the Brumbies deserve this result as they dominated in most facets of play.

77 The 'Canes are trying desperately to get in for another try! Leiua goes on another attacking run but inside the Brumbies' 22 but runs into James Marshall. The referee penalises the visitors for obstruction and the Brumbies get out of jail!

74 Conrad Smith shows great skill when he gathers a pass from Barrett on his bootlaces and gets in at the corner! However, the try is disallowed as the television match official rules that he had a foot in touch!

71 The Canes are on the attack inside the Brumbies' 22 but soon lose possession when Alapati Leiua holds onto the ball on the ground.

TRY67 TRY, HURRICANES, PERENARA! 30-23. TJ Perenara scores after running onto a pass from Vito off the back of a scrum on the Brumbies' five-metre line!

66 Mark Reddish spots a gap close the Brumbies try-line and tries to force his way over but knocks on in the process.

64 The 'Canes are trying to get back into this game and this time it's their turn to be camped in their opponents' 22! They take the ball through 15 phases but the Brumbies are soon pinned for being offside and Barrett puts the ball out close to their hosts' try-line.

61 CONVERSION, BRUMBIES, LEALIIFANO! 30-16. Lealiifano adds the extras and the home side has a little bit of breathing room now!

Half Time Brumbies 14 - 10 Hurricanes

40 The Canes try to launch a counter attack from inside their 22 but Coles knocks on! The hooter sounds to signal half-time, shortly afterwards, and the players head into the sheds. As the scoreline suggests, this is a close contest. The Brumbies held the upperhand early on but the 'Canes have fought back well and are still in this game. It should be an interesting second half.

39 The Brumbies put huge pressure on the 'Canes in a scrum! The visitors' front row capitulates under the pressure and concede a penalty.
