    Full Time
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • The Rebels are awarded a penalty on their five-metre line when Ben Alexander is penalised for illegal scrummaging.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • The Brumbies string six phases together until the ball goes wide to Joe Tomane, who is tackled into touch by Lachlan Mitchell.

  • CONVERSION, BRUMBIES, LEALIIFANO! 13-25. Lealiifano adds the extras which means the Rebels must score twice if they want to win this game.

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • PENALTY, BRUMBIES, LEALIIFANO! 13-18. Lealiifano adds another three-pointer after Scott Higginbotham goes offside at a ruck.

  • 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!

  • The Rebels attack out wide but Lachlan Mitchell fails to hold onto a difficult pass from Laurie Weeks.

  • The Rebels gain a reprieve when the Brumbies' front-row is penalised for a scrum infringement deep inside the hosts' 22.

  • 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!

  • PENALTY, BRUMBIES, LEALIIFANO! 13-15. Christian Leallifano gives the Brumbies the lead after Hugh Pyle fails to roll away at a ruck.

  • 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.

  • 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.
