Sydney - Australia's Stirling Mortlock became the highest points scorer in Super 14 rugby on Saturday as he inspired the Brumbies to a 37-15 win over the Blues.
Centre Mortlock scored a try and kicked two conversions and a penalty to overtake Andrew Mehrtens as the leading scorer in the competition's history. He now has 994 points, four more than the former All Blacks flyhalf.
Francis Fainifo, Patrick Phibbs, Huia Edmonds and Sitaleki Timani also scored tries as the Brumbies piled on five second-half touchdowns to claim maximum points and remain in contention for a place in the semi-finals.
The Brumbies play the Chiefs at Hamilton on Friday in the final round of the regular season, needing to win to reach the playoffs.
Brumbies captain Stephen Hoiles said afterwards: “We give ourselves a good shot at every game we go into.
"It's a six-day turnaround, but I know the lads are excited and history shows this year that in these sorts of games, we've responded well."
