Commentary
  • 80'

    The Brumbies string together 12 phases and make their way into the Chiefs 22, before knocking it on. That will most likely be that.

  • 80'

    FULL-TIME: CHIEFS 24-19 BRUMBIES. The Chiefs hold on by the skin of their teeth and earn some valuable points and the Brumbies get a losing bonus point. What a good comeback by the Brumbies after a poor first half. Thank you for joining us.

  • 79'

    Damian McKenzie sends an easy penalty kick wide after wasting quite a bit of time.

  • 77'

    Connal McInerney is penalised for not releasing the ball and the Chiefs have a penalty. They will have a shot at goal to run the clock down.

  • 75'

    CONVERSION, BRUMBIES, HAWERA! 24-19: Wharenui Hawera adds the extras and we have a five point game with five minutes to play.

  • 74'

    TRY, BRUMBIES, SPEIGHT! 24-17: The Brumbies win a penalty and go for the corner. This time they go wide and Henry Speight gets his second try of the night. Great work by the Brumbies.

  • 72'

    CONVERSION, BRUMBIES, HAWERA! 24-12: Wharenui Hawera adds the extras.

  • 71'

    TRY, BRUMBIES, BANKS! 24-10: Matt Lucas sets up Tom Banks, who breaks into a gap. They recycle the ball and then Hawera sends Banks away to score!

  • 70'

    The Brumbies win their line-out, but yet again Charlie Ngatai is effective in securing the turn-over for the Chiefs.

  • 67'

    The Brumbies secure a scrum penalty and Sam Prattley is penalised. They feed a line-out three metres out.

  • 65'

    YELLOW CARD, CHIEFS, PARETE! 24-5: Jesse Parete is sin-binned for a high tackle and the Brumbies finds a good touch.

  • 64'

    Everything continues to go wrong for the Brumbies and we have yet another knock-on.

  • 62'

    CONVERSION, CHIEFS, MCKENZIE! 24-5: McKenzie slots another good kick. Surely the Brumbies are done now!

  • 61'

    TRY, CHIEFS, FAAULI! 22-5: After a few resets at the scrum the Brumbies go wide and the ball is intercepted by Damian MacKenzie, who runs the best part of 80 metres, before being stopped. They recycle the ball before Marty McKenzie kicks it through and the bounce favours Johnny Faauli, who scores!

  • 58'

    The Brumbies win another penalty and Michael Allardice is adjudged offside after a great 50 metre run by Kyle Godwin. The Brumbies opt for a scrum.

  • 56'

    The conversion is sent wide by Christian Lealiifano.

  • 55'

    TRY, BRUMBIES, SPEIGHT! 17-5: The Brumbies somehow manage to get hold of their line-out ball. They string together eight phases, before Henry Speight storms over and scores! Finally!

  • 53'

    Luke Jacobson is penalised at the breakdown and the Brumbies go for the line-out.

  • 51'

    The Brumbies string together five phases, before a pass from Mayhew to Henry Speight goes forward.

  • 50'

    The Brumbies win a scrum penalty and Karl Tu'inukuafe is penalised. Banks again fails to find touch. They get the ball back and Banks breaks into a gap.

  • 48'

    Damian McKenzie finds Shaun Stevenson on the left and he is well stopped by Tevita Kuridrani. The Brumbies then launch an attack, but again they mess it up with a knock-on. They are really struggling to get going.

  • 46'

    The Chiefs secure the line-out and go wide. They string together seven phases and make their way into the 22.

  • 44'

    Tom Banks is guilty of not releasing the ball and the Chiefs go for the line-out.

  • 42'

    Henry Speight claims the restart. He has been really quiet and that is a sign of a subdued Brumbies team.

  • 41'

    Kick-off! We are back underway in the second half.

  • 40'

    HALF-TIME: CHIEFS 17-0 BRUMBIES. The Chiefs lead at the break and they have been lethal. The Brumbies have made far too many mistakes and have not been able to make anything stick. Please join us for the second half soon.

  • 39'

    The Brumbies survive after some good interplay between Charlie Ngatai and Sean Wainui, but the pass to Pulu is poor and it runs into touch. The Brumbies win a penalty at the line-out.

  • 37'

    Banks then accelerates towards the 22. The Brumbies string together 22 patient phases, before Tevita Kuridrani is stopped short. Rory Arnold then messes it up by losing the ball forward. Sam Cane is down and will need to go for a HIA and Lachlan Boshier comes on to replace him.

  • 31'

    TRY, CHIEFS, MCKENZIE! 15-0: Sam Cane offloads to Damian McKenzie, who makes good ground. In the flash of an eye the Chiefs go left and Damian McKenzie scores! There's a surprise. That all started with a Charlie Ngatai turn-over in their own 22.

  • 30'

    Again they drive forward after the line-out, but this time they knock it on.

  • 28'

    The Brumbies secure the line-out and drive forward. Angus Ta'avao is penalised at the breakdown and the Brumbies opt for another line-out.

    Luke Jacobson fails to roll away from the ruck for yet another Brumbies penalty. Banks finds a good touch.

  • 25'

    CONVERSION, CHIEFS, MCKENZIE! 10-0: McKenzie adds the extras.

  • 24'

    TRY, CHIEFS, HARRIS! 8-0: Charlie Ngatai is into a gap and the Chiefs string together 12 phases. After a really patient build-up Nathan Harris storms over for a try! That is a good present on his return after the birth of his child.

  • 22'

    Charlie Ngatai tries a grubber and sends the Brumbies back for a line-out in their 22. Good percentage play from the Chiefs.

  • 20'

    The Chiefs make their way into the Brumbies half and that man McKenzie is involved again. The Chiefs secure a penalty and Nic Mayhew is offside. They will have a shot at goal.

  • 10'

    We have a few resets at the scrum and the referee has a word.

  • 7'

  • 6'

    They secure their line-out and Powell ensures they reach the Chiefs 22. It is turned-over and Weber finds a good clearance kick for the Chiefs.
