The Brumbies travel to Auckland to see if they can turn around last week’s drubbing by the Chiefs.

Both teams come off rather convincing losses in round 8.

Will the Blues stay up there in 3rd spot?

Or will the Brumbies move up a few places.

Kick-Off in Auckland at 09:35 SA time.

    We either all win or nobody wins. Seems nobody thinks the Brumbies can do this.

  • Missed Drop Goal – Nacewa tries a drop but doesn’t connect the ball properly and the ball is short and wide of the poles.

  • Loadshedding?

    Brumbies 13-6

    Blues still making far too many mistakes and they are useless in the lineouts…
