    Cape Town - The Brumbies continued their perfect start to the 2013 Super Rugby season when they beat the Rebels in Melbourne of Friday.

    The Brumbies won 30-13 after trailling 13-12 at half-time.

    The Brumbies scored four tries through fullback Jesse Mogg, wing Clyde Rathbone, No 8 Ben Mowen and replacement back Robbie Coleman. Centre Christian Lealiifano added two conversions and two penalties.

    The Rebels replied with a try by flank Scott Higginbotham and a conversion and two penalties by fullback James O'Connor.

    The Brumbies, who beat the Reds in Round 1, picked up a further five points for their victory to move clear at the top of the Australian Conference, as well as assume the early lead in the Overall log.

    The Rebels, victors over the Force in Round 1, left empty-handed, but remained second in the Australian Conference.

    In next weekend's Round 3 action, the Brumbies have a bye, while the Rebels travel to Sydney to play the Waratahs.
