  • Brumbies 28 Kings 28

  • CONVERSION, KINGS, CATRAKILIS! 28-28. The replacement levels it in a dramatic finish. We have a draw.

  • TRY, KINGS, DU PREEZ! 28-26. So much has happened in the final minute! The Kings have been camped on the Brumbies line and just when the hosts thought they'd survived, referee Peyper blew for Alexander taking out a player off the ball. Back came the Kings and it was Du Preez going over in the end. Wow.

  • PENALTY, BRUMBIES, LEALIIFANO! 28-21. This time the hosts get three points after the Brumbies dominate the Kings at scrum time. The fly-half's effort went over off the post which is fitting - if they win - to how they have narrowly managed to get past this spirited Kings outfit. One minute left in Canberra.

  • The Kings enter a ruck from the side so it's a chance for White to make Whitehead pay for his miss. The scrum-half lines it up from long range...but pushes that one to the right so it remains 25-21.

  • But Whitehead has missed what is classed in some circles as being a sitter. How costly will that be.

  • The Kings are coming back with interest though through replacement Jacques Engelbrecht, who bumps off Speight before a penalty advantage is played. That offence is eventually blown so Whitehead steps up.

  • PENALTY, BRUMBIES, LEALIIFANO! 25-21. Scrum penalty goes against the Kings so it's a chance for the fly-half now from wide on his left side to add three points to the tally. No mistake from the pivot.

  • White lines a kick up from's going, it's going, but it hits the post. The Brumbies eventually get the ball back though due to a Kings knock-on so the visitors are not clear yet

  • YELLOW, KINGS, FERREIRA! The prop is sent to the bin for clearly not rolling away from the tackle.

  • Replacement hooker Stephen Moore has just grubbered into touch which is the clearest sign yet that the Brumbies are struggling to penetrate this South African defence. Jake White looks an anxious coach.

  • Oosthuizen is replaced by Sam Carter for the final quarter as the Brumbies come again, with Smith taking it up 35 metres out. Can the Kings keep this defence up that's served them so well in 2013?

  • The visiting forwards save the day though and hold up the attacking player to create a Kings scrum.

  • Soyizwapi now makes the mistake and that is even worse than Whitehead's as the full-back sends the ball out on the full from his own ten-metre. Here come the Brumbies again then with a driving maul.

  • Whitehead will get an earful from his forwards as they have just won a scrum against the head, only to look up and see their fly-half has kicked the ball out on the full. A Brumbies scrum on halfway then.

  • The Brumbies have the territory but have not had a good spell of possession for a bit. Remember this is only a one-point ball game so the longer it stays like that, the more frustrated they may become.

  • A bit of kick tennis has just taken place as Soyizwapi and Coleman exchange offerings. That finally ends with Coleman putting the ball into touch on halfway...before the Brumbies steal Maku's throw.

  • PENALTY, BRUMBIES, LEALIIFANO! 22-21. Great strike from the touchline so the hosts are back in front.

  • Great work from Kimlin as he charges down Vergallo's attempted clearance in his own 22. That results in the scrum-half being penalised for holding on after regathering so it's a wide shot for Lealiifano.

  • CONVERSION, KINGS, WHITEHEAD! 19-21. So, the Kings are ahead. Would you believe it.
