    2018-03-09 12:46

    Cape Town - The Rebels have continued their fine start to the 2018 Super Rugby season with victory over the Brumbies in their all-Australian clash in Melbourne on Friday.

    As it happened: Rebels v Brumbies

    The Rebels won 33-10 after leading 14-5 at half-time.

    Reece Hodge scored two tries for the hosts - one in each half - as the rebels secured their third win in as many weeks. 

    Amaki Mafi, Jack Maddocks and Michael Ruru scored the other tries for the Rebels, who also managed to secure a valuable bonus point.

    The Brumbies, flat on the day and now without a win in two, scored their tries through Chance Peni and Henry Speight.

    In next weekend's Round 5 action, the Rebels travel to Sydney to play the Waratahs (Sunday, March 18 at 07:05 SA time), while the Brumbies host the Sharks in Canberra (Saturday, March 17 at 10:45 SA time).
