• Brumbies outclass Force

    The Brumbies won 27-14 in Perth on Saturday after two late tries from the Western Force.

    It was one-way traffic as the Brumbies scored three tries to cruise to a 21-0 lead after just 23 minutes and were up 24-0 by half-time. Scott Fardy, Jesse Mogg and Robbie Coleman all touched down before the interval but the Brumbies bus slowed to a halt thereafter.

    The Force finally answered through Jayden Hayward and Ben McCalman, who touched down in the last five minutes, but the Brumbies were out of sight.
