Brumbies’ victory over Highlanders.

Date:

However, the Highlanders refused to go away in the contest, thanks to Thomas Umaga-Jensen and James Lentjes. 

A late try to the fly-half sealed the victory as the Brumbies held out a late charge from the hosts. 

The Brumbies looked unstoppable in the first half, with the return of Lolesio proving deadly. His pass to Tom Wright should have opened the scoring; however, the Wallaby somehow dropped the ball over the line with no one around him. 

Fortunately for the visitors, they crossed seven minutes, as the relentless pressure from Jahrome Brown was rewarded with a try. 

Lachlan Lonergan did what every good Brumbies’ hooker does as he dived over the line from the back of a rolling maul, rewarding their early dominance. 

Nic White’s try minutes later was ruled out as the Highlanders found their way back into the contest through Peter Umaga-Jensen. 

While James Lentjes crashed over six minutes later, the Brumbies remained composed and continued to add to the scoreboard while the Highlanders hunted for their third try. Sam Gilbert looks to have pulled off the year’s try after he latched onto a Umaga-Jensen grubber. However, the TMO judged the replacement back to have lost the ball. It marks the first win for the Australian sides in Super Round after two early defeats to the Reds and Waratahs, with the Brumbies preparing to face the Hurricanes next week. Meanwhile, the Highlanders face the challenging task of heading to Fiji to meet the Drua in a must-win clash if they wish to play the finals.
