    The Brumbies won 30-19 after leading 17-12 at half-time.

    The Brumbies scored three tries through wings Henry Speight and Joe Tomane and flank George Smith. Centre Christian Lealiifano added all three conversions as well as two penalties. Scrumhalf Nic White also added a penalty.

    The Highlanders replied with a try by scrumhalf Aaron Smith and a conversion and four penalties by flyhalf Hayden Parker.

    The Brumbies picked up four points for their victory to extend their lead atop the Australian Conference standings and regain the lead in the Overall log.

    The Highlanders left empty-handed and remain rooted to the bottom of both the New Zealand Conference and Overall standings.

    In next weekend's Round 10 action, the Brumbies travel to Brisbane to face the Reds (Saturday, April 20 at 11:40) while the Highlanders face a daunting task as they make the trip to Christchurch to tackle the seven-time champion Crusaders (Saturday, April 20 at 09:35).
