Reds v Brumbies - Live

Last updated: 11th April 2014  

Full Time Reds 20 Brumbies 23

80 The Reds have a line-out, just outside their 22 and take the ball through the hands with their backs. They eventually concede a turnover close to their 10-metre line and, when he hears the sound of the hooter, White boots the ball into touch. That's the ball-game and the visitors have clung on to claim the win. It was a game of two halves but, in the end, the hosts will kick themselves for their slow start as they eventually fell just short.

78 The Brumbies attack with their forwards inside the Reds' 22. They set up several phases with pick-up-and-goes with Stephen Moore, Ben Mowen and JP Smith prominent.

75 The Brumbies finally launch an attack, inside the Reds' 22, but it all comes to nothing when Lachlan McCaffrey knocks on a pass from White.

72 Ben Lucas gathers the ball, just inside the Reds' half, and kicks for touch in a bid to win territory for his side. He over-cooks it and can only watch as the ball sails directly into touch.

Penalty70 PENALTY, REDS, COOPER! 20-23. Cooper narrows the gap to a point after several Brumbies are pinged for going off their feet at a ruck.

68 The Reds attack with their forwards and the Brumbies are now starting to wilt on defence. Simmons and Saia Fainga'a are prominent ball-carriers for the Reds, ho have their tails up now.

Conversion65 CONVERSION, REDS, COOPER! 17-23. Cooper adds the extras and the momentum shift has definitely swung in the home side's favour now!

TRY64 TRY, REDS, QUIRK! 15-23. The Reds destroy the Brumbies in a scrum, close to the visitors' try-line! From the set-piece the hosts get a pushover try with Ed Quirk the man to get his name onto the score-sheet!

63 The Reds attack close to the Brumbies' 22 and Cooper finds himself in the clear after running onto an inside pass from Ben Tapuai. He is over the try-line but loses possession after a great cover tackle from Tomane!

61 It's all Reds at the moment! They are on the attack, inside the visitors' 22, but the Brumbies' defensive line is right across the field and moving up as one.

58 The Reds attack from a line-out, just outside the Brumbies' 22. The ball is spun wide with the backs where it reaches Davies. He is soon inside the Brumbies' 22 but loses possession, close to the try-line, after a big hit from White!

55 The Reds have certainly upped the ante after the break. They've spent the past five minutes inside the Brumbies' half but the visitors' defence are doing well to contain them.

52 Ben Alexander is penalised for illegal play at a ruck and Cooper puts the resulting penalty into touch on the visitors' five-metre line.

49 The Reds are on the attack close to the attack close to the Brumbies' try-line and Chris Feauai-Sautia is over in the corner but is stopped just short of the line. Will Genia then dives over and referee Steve Walsh calls in the TMO. After several minutes of consultation no try is awarded.

46 Mogg lasunches an up-and-under and Jake Schatz miss-times his jump and completely misses the ball! The Brumbies are lurking but Rod Davies spares his team-mates' blushes as he dives onto the loose ball.

Penalty44 PENALTY, BRUMBIES, WHITE! 10-23. White gets the first points of the second half after the Reds are pinged for illegal scrummaging.

41 White gets the second half underway! The ball is gathered by Rob Simmons, who sets up a ruck on the edge of his 22.

Half Time40 Reds 10 Brumbies 20

40 White takes a shot at goal, from about 40 metres out,after James Slipper is pinged for dropping his bind at a scrum. His effort has the distance but not the direction and the Reds gain a reprieve on the stroke of half-time. The Brumbies started brightly and deserved their early lead. They did most of the attacking while the home side initially were battling to build momentum. Very little went right for the 2011 champions but they fought back well with that late try from Robinson. It should be an interesting second 40 minutes.

38 The Brumbies are throwing the ball around but the Reds' defence is solid and it's as if they are waiting on the visitors' to make a mistake. This soon happens and Ben Mowen is the culprit, who knocks on just inside the home side's half.

Conversion35 CONVERSION, REDS, COOPER! 10-20. Cooper lands the difficult place-kick which narrows the gap to two points!

TRY34 TRY, REDS, ROBINSON! 8-20. The Reds launch a drive, from a line-out deep inside the Brumbies' 22, and when they spot the try-line they crash over! Beau Robinson is the man who gets up with the ball under a pile of bodies.

Conversion32 CONVERSION, BRUMBIES, WHITE! 3-20. White adds another two-pointer to give his side a 17-point lead!

TRY31 TRY, BRUMBIES, TOMANE! 3-18. The Brumbies attack inside the Reds' 22. Nic White throws a long pass to Jesse Mogg, who offloads to Joe Tomane and the flyer breaks infield past two defenders before dotting down!

29 The Reds are under pressure at a line-out, inside their 22. And to make matters worse, James Hanson is blown up for a crooked throw-in.

26 Ben Alexander runs onto a pass from White and is in the clear inside the Reds' 22! He offloads to Scott Sio who knocks on about eight metres from the try-line!

Penalty23 PENALTY, BRUMBIES, WHITE! 3-13. White adds another three-pointer after Anthony Fainga'a is penalised for a high tackle on Jarrad Butler.

20 Cooper spots the Brumbies back-line lying flat on defence and delivers a beautifully weighted cross-field kick which rolls into touch just outside the visitors' 22.

18 Joe Tomane slips past Chris Feauai-Sautia and is in the clear down the right-hand touchline! He then throws a shocking forward pass to Pat McCabe and the Reds get of jail!

Penalty15 PENALTY, BRUMBIES, WHITE. 3-10. Nic White adds a three-pointer after James Horwill is blown up for a ruck infringement.

Penalty12 PENALTY, REDS, COOPER. 3-7. Cooper narrows the gap to four points, from the kicking tee, after the Brumbies are pinged for a scrum infringement.

Conversion10 CONVERSION, BRUMBIES, WHITE! 0-7. Nic White slots the conversion to extend the visitors' lead!

TRY9 TRY, BRUMBIES, FARDY! 0-5. Scott Fardy pounces on an error in the Reds defence. Cooper knocks on after a Robbie Coleman tackle, close to his try-line, and Fardy pounces on the loose ball before crashing over!

7 The Reds attack from a scrum just outside their 22. Jake Schatz sets up a ruck and Will Genia then passes to Cooper, who boots the ball upfield. Jesse Mogg gathers on his 10-metre line and returns Cooper's kick with a kick of his own, but his 0ver-cooked it as the ball rolls over the hosts' dead-ball line.

4 The Brumbies take the ball through several phases with their forwards and are soon inside the Reds' 22. The ball is spun out wide to their backs but Tevita Kuridrani knocks on a skip pass from Toomua!

1 And we're off! Quade Cooper's kick off is deep and Nic White fumbles while fielding! he manages to gather eventually and offloads to Matt Toomua, who tries to clear his line, but his kick is charged down by James Horwill! Luckily for the Brumbies the ball rolls over the dead-ball line so we'll have a drop out from inside the visitors' 22.

Reds boss Richard Graham has made two changes to his starting XV. Chris Feauai-Sautia returns on the wing for his first start since injuring his hamstring in Johannesburg three weeks ago, replacing Jamie-Jerry Taulagi who moves to the reserves, while Anthony Fainga''a will start at inside centre in place of Mike Harris.

Tom Staniforth will make his Super Rugby debut at lock for the Brumbies in this encounter. Staniforth will be joined by Wallabies Stephen Moore and Scott Sio, who are back from injury to face the Reds and give the Brumbies an all-Wallaby front row. The 19-year-old Australian U20 representative comes into the side for Sam Carter, who has been ruled out through a knee injury. Sio and Moore return to the front row for JP Smith and Siliva Siliva, who both move back to the bench for Ruaidhri Murphy and Josh Mann-Rea respectively in an otherwise unchanged team.

Hello and welcome to the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane for this Australian Super Rugby derby between our hosts, the Reds, and the Brumbies. We'll be back soon with team news!
