• Brumbies get good workout

    Two South Africans scored tries as the Brumbies thrashed an ACT XV 67-0 in a warm-up match at Viking Park.

    The blowout was to be expected considering the invitational side was made up of the state's best club players and the Brumbies fielded 10 Wallabies in their starting XV.

    David Pocock's team scored 10 tries, with replacement hooker Siliva Siliva scoring a hat-trick, and South African duo, utility back Stephan van der Walt and prop Ruan Smith, crossing the line after coming off the bench, 

    Flyhalf Lionel Cronjé also came on as a replacement in the second half and slotted a couple of conversions.

    Brumbies – Tries: Harumichi Tatekawa, Joe Tomane, Scott Sio, Henry Speight, Siliva Siliva (3), Stephan van der Walt, Robbie Coleman, Ruan Smith. Conversions: TBC.

    Brumbies – 15 Jesse Mogg, 14 Henry Speight, 13 Andrew Smith, 12 Harumichi Tatekawa, 11 Joseph Tomane, 10 Matt Toomua, 9 Nic White, 8 Ben Mowen (c), 7 David Pocock, 6 Scott Fardy, 5 Jack Whetton, 4 Leon Power, 3 Ben Alexander, 2 Stephen Moore, 1 Scott Sio.
