Poor by the Sharks but they were in it the entire way. Lots to take out of that game - Well done @RugbyBrumbies - Judge Rugby
What an ugly mess! That is all. #Sharks - Irene Nell
Well anyone who knows the game would've expected a slug fest between these 2 teams,tough result but taking a point away from Canberra helps! - John Smit
FULL-TIME: Brumbies 16-9 Sharks
Not the best game of rugby in tough conditions, but the Sharks clearly came second best in the tactical kicking department. They do earn a losing bonus point which keeps them at the top of the log standings.
80' - No luck for the Sharks as a Jean Deysel knock-on allows the Brumbies to kick out just inside their own 22m area to end the game...
79' - But there's time for one more lineout - this one is further out though...
79' - However, the Sharks butcher the lineout, and the Brumbies kick out.
79'- A poor clearance from Mogg gives the Sharks one last attacking chance inside the Brumbies 22m area...
78' - Bismarck is not in trouble, and rightly so. It was just bit of handbags and the referee plays on. Scrum to the Brumbies five metres from their own line...
77' - Bismarck du Plessis could be in trouble here. He was caught pushing a Brumbies player...
77' - Oh dear, the Sharks knock it on! And just as I write, the players are involved in a mass brawl, which sees the TMO called into action for potential foul play...
76' - Another Sharks penalty. They again opt for touch - this time it's five metres out.
74' - The Sharks win a penalty from the ensuing scrum. They opt to kick for touch on the 22m line...
73' - Lwazi Mvovo almost goes scores in the corner, but Brumbies No 9 Nic White comes to the rescue when he dives to get to the ball first.
However, the assistant referee calls play back for a forward pass, so it wouldn't have counted...
71' - Steyn kicks the PENALTY to bring the Sharks back into the game.
Brumbies 16-9 Sharks
70' - Brumbies captain Ben Mowen is penalised for tackling a Sharks player without the ball. Steyn to line up from in front...

68' - A Brumbies penalty at the ensuing scrum gives them the chance to get back up-field...
67' - TWEET
Jake must have a good reason but I dunno why he starts Reinach and plays McLeod off bench - Zelim Nel
67' - Oh dear, Chadwick is just on and he knocks it on inside the Brumbies 22m area...
66' - Dale Chadwick also on for The Beast at prop.
65' - Tera Mtembu and Charl McLeod now on for the Sharks. Ryan Kankowski and Cobus Reinach off.
64' - CONVERSION by Lealiifano.
Brumbies 16-6 Sharks
63' - TRY! Brumbies lock Sam Carter breaks through the Sharks line and scores under the posts. It was set up by a great angled run from Nic White. A running line reminiscent of George Gregan there!
62' - But the Sharks clear it - and not too far!
61' - A sniping break on the blindside from Pat McCabe brings the Brumbies into the Sharks 22, but a brilliant steal on the ground from Bismarck du Plessis brings relief for the visitors.
61' - Jannie du Plesis and Odwa Ndungane off for the Sharks. Lourens Adriaanse and SP Marais on.
60' - The Brumbies are winning the aerial battle at the moment. Jesse Mogg showing his class...
57' - This time Lealiifano hits the left-hand upright!
Some horrible goal-kicking in this game...
56' - Another Brumbies penalty from the ensuing scrum! The Bok front row went backwards alarmingly there!
Lealiifano will again line up. This kick's a bit easier...
55' - Another high ball dropped by the Sharks. Ndungane the culprit this time...
52' - Lealiifano's effort hits the right-hand upright... Sharks off the hook.
51' - From the ensuing scrum, the Sharks are penalised.
Lealiifano to line up from about 40m out, 20m in from touch.
51' - JP Pietersen drops an up-and-under inside his own half. The Springbok's hands have let him down badly in recent weeks... Did playing in Japan do him all that good?
48' - For the second time today, Frans Steyn kicks directly into touch from the kick-off!
47' - PENALTY converted by Lealiifano.
Brumbies 9-6 Sharks.
46' - The Brumbies hit right back, and win a penalty, easily within kicking range... Sharks penalised for not rolling away at ruck time.
44' - PENALTY converted by Steyn to level matters.
Brumbies 6-6 Sharks
43' - The Sharks steal the ensuing lineout and are hot on the attack again!
They win a penalty when the Brumbies cynically go off-side. Sharks skipper Bismarck du Plessis is not happy. He feels that should have been a yellow card. He's got a point!
Frans Steyn not having the best of nights... (Getty Images)
42' - A promising start by the Sharks, who launch an attack inside the Brumbies 22m area, but the touchline wins when Lwazi Mvovo is tackled out.
41' - Brumbies wing Joe Tomane is off to hospital with what looks like a broken jaw!
40' - DID YOU KNOW?
The Sharks have now not scored a try in the first half of their last six games!
40' - Welcome back for the second half. Matt Toomua starts proceedings...

HALF-TIME: Brumbies 6-3 Sharks
40' - Lealiifano misses the penalty attempt to the left.
39' - However, two minutes later the Sharks are penalised for not scrumming straight. It's in range, close to the touchline...
37' - Massive scrum on halfway from the Sharks though. It puts heaps of pressure on Brumbies scrumhalf Nic White, but he does well to retain possession...
37' - Steyn kicks the ensuing kick-off directly into touch. He is having a shocker!
36' - PENALTY converted by Lealiifano.
Brumbies 6-3 Sharks
35' - The Brumbies now win a kickable penalty in range.
Lealiifano to line up from about 35m out, almost right out in front...
32' - Steyn is not having a good night. He fails to find touch with a penalty just inside his own half. He kicks it hard though and it goes over the dead-ball line...
30' - Steyn again misses to the left. 1 out of 4 now from him.
It appears he left his kicking boots at the hotel!
29 - Another shot at goal for Steyn as the Sharks win a penalty close to the touchline...
Consistent, soft rain also coming down now...
27'- No real try-scoring opportunities in this match as yet...
26' - An attacking chance for the Sharks inside the Brumbies 22m area is halted when they are penalised for holding on too long...

24' - Meanwhile, Sharks centre Paul Jordaan is also in the blood-bin, with Heimar Williams temporarily on.
23' - Replays show the Bok prop went charging into the ruck without using his arms. Just a penalty against him.
23' - The TMO is called into action for potential foul play against Jannie de Plessis.
22' - Brumbies centre Tevita Kuridrani has passed his concussion test and is back on. Joe Tomane is still off in the blood-bin though...
21' - After 21 minutes, there have been 32 kicks in play. The Sharks with 17 and the Brumbies 15.
19' - It's a good strike from White, but he misses it narrowly to the left...
18' - Sharks prop Jannie du Plessis penalised for going off his feet at a ruck on halfway. Nic White will have a shot at goal...
17' - Brumbies centre Tevita Kuridrani is off for a concussion test after a big hit on Frans Steyn.
Wing Joe Tomane is also off for blood, but it looks like he took a big knock to his cheekbone. It's swollen up badly. He may not be back!
16' - The Sharks surge back up into the Brumbies 22m area, but lose possession when Jean Deysel knocks it on...
15' - Third time lucky for Steyn, who slots the PENALTY.
Brumbies 3-3 Sharks
14' - Jeepers, another kickable penalty to the Sharks. Moore again the culprit, caught cynically playing the ball in an off-side position.

10' - Brumbies No 2 Stephen Moore is penalised for holding back Sharks scrumhalf Cobus Reinach.
Steyn will line up from the touchline...
9' - After 9 minutes of play, already 24 kicks in play. 12 each from both teams!
4' - An aerial ding-dong kicking affair in Canberra. Two tactical teams, both with Jake White's signature on them...
1'- PENALTY converted by Christian Lealiifano.
Brumbies 3-0 Sharks
0' - Great start by the Brumbies as wing Joe Tomane rips through the Sharks defence straight from the kick-off. The hosts surge into Sharks territory and win a kickable penalty.
