Wing Henry Sleight scored two tries as the Brumbies thrashed Western Force 41-7 on Saturday to regain their lead in the Super Rugby overall standings.

In a totally one-sided clash at Canberra Stadium, Jake White's troops underlined their title credentials as they outscored their hapless visitors six tries to one.

The result leaves the Brumbies five points clear of the Chiefs at the summit of the combined table and three clear of the Reds in the Australian conference.

Meanwhile, the Force are left rooted to the bottom of the Aussie conference with just two wins from their ten games this season.

The home side had the four-try bonus point wrapped up by half time as they cruised to a 29-0 lead at the interval.

As well as Sleight's brace of tries, full-back Jesse Mogg and outside centre Tevita Kuridrani also touched down.

The one-way traffic continued in the second period as Joe Tomane crossed in the corner. Christian Lealiifano kicked four conversions and a penalty to ensure every member of the Brumbies backline was represented on the scorecard.

Of course, the home pack did all the hard graft and were rewarded for their efforts when replacement hooker Siliva Siliva crashed over to complete the rout.

A late try from Force skipper Matt Hodgson off the back of a rolling maul got the visitors on the scoreboard but was scant consolation for a team that have lost their last three games against their rivals from the capital.

Next week the Brumbies host the Crusaders while the Force welcome the Reds to Perth.
