  • 82'

    FULL-TIME: BRUMBIES 27-24 REDS. Sorovi knocks on and a topsy-turvy contest at the GIO Stadium sees the Brumbies come out on top.

  • 80'

    One last chance for the Reds from a scrum just inside their own half. They get the penalty and can put it into touch now.

  • 77'

    TRY, REDS, WILSON! 27-22: Good response from the Reds — a well-worked move off a good, quick lineout takes them just short of the line and Wilson finishes the job.

  • 77'

    CONVERSION, REDS, HEGARTY! 27-24: Hegarty wastes no time adding the extras.

  • 76'

    PENALTY, BRUMBIES, LOLESIO! 27-17: The Brumbies opt to go for posts and Lolesio knocks the kick over from right underneath.

  • 74'

    The Reds need to find a way back into the game, but the Brumbies still have the momentum. They win a penalty for not rolling away right under the posts.

  • 69'

    CONVERSION, BRUMBIES, LOLESIO! 24-17: Lolesio extends the lead to a converted try.

  • 67'

    TRY, BRUMBIES, BANKS! 22-17: Simone creates a gap for Banks to burst through. He evades Lucas and goes over under the posts for the try. The Brumbies lead again at long last!

  • 64'

    The first game of today saw the Chiefs come back from 19-5 down to win 37-29 against the Blues. The second has seen the Brumbies claw their way back from 17-7 down, but there is still everything to play for.

  • 61'

    Wilson kicks ahead for McDermott to chase. He's absolutely flying, but the ball bounces over the dead-ball line.

  • 60'

    Lolesio pushes the conversion attempt wide of the posts, so the score remains 17-17 as we approach the hour-mark.

  • 58'

    TRY, BRUMBIES, FAINGA'A! 17-17: You don't want to give the Brumbies a sniff from there, because their driving maul is so dangerous. Fainga'a goes over in the corner to level the scores!

  • 57'

    Another penalty for the Brumbies — this one against Liam Wright for not rolling away. Banks sets up an attacking lineout.

  • 55'

    Tupou is penalised for offside and Banks boots the ball into touch inside Reds territory.

  • 53'

    AJ Jacobs is unhappy with a scrum and orders a reset on the Brumbies' put-in. There have been plenty of changes among the forward packs. This time, the scrum is good and the Brumbies look to run the ball out from deep.

  • 49'

    Lolesio pushes the conversion attempt wide of the posts. The score remains 12-17.

  • 47'

    TRY, BRUMBIES, WRIGHT! 12-17: Hegarty is tackled as he gives the ball to Speight and it goes loose. The Brumbies go on the attack with Kuridrani setting up Wright out wide. He goes all the way for the try!

  • 44'

    A scrappy start to the second half has seen both teams squander the ball while trying to build attacks. The two coaches will be hoping for better.

  • 41'

    CONVERSION, REDS, HEGARTY! HALF-TIME: BRUMBIES 7-17 REDS. The Reds got off to a slow start, but they've really found their feet to lead 17-7 at the GIO Stadium. They don't win this game away often and this could be a crucial game in what is usually a tightly-contested Aussie conference

  • 41'

    KICK-OFF! The Reds get the second half underway. Valetini takes just outside the 22 for the Brumbies.

  • 40'

    TRY, REDS, HEGARTY! 7-15: At last, Lucas moves the ball to Hegarty, who evades Banks' tackle attempt to dive over for the try!

  • 39'

    The Reds are piling on the pressure once more, just short of the try line after 13 phases.

  • 36'

    Another unforced handling error as Sio spills a pass. The Brumbies need to improve that aspect of their game.

  • 34'

    The Reds pile on the pressure once again, but they're penalised for not releasing the ball and the move comes to an end.

  • 32'

    Tupou is away after a chargedown from Blyth, but the Reds lost the ball forward at the lineout directly before this, so we go back for a scrum.

  • 30'

    Fainga'a's pass to Lolesio goes astray and an attacking opportunity for the Brumbies goes to waste.

  • 26'

    PENALTY, REDS, HEGARTY! 7-10: Hegarty puts the Reds in front, which really didn't look likely 15 minutes ago. It's been a strong fightback from the visitors, who have only won 3 of 18 games at the GIO Stadium.

  • 24'

    The Reds get the penalty. Front row collapsing at the scrum. Tupou has been immense for them so far.

  • 22'

    The Brumbies dominated the early minutes of this game, but the Reds are very much beginning to find their feet.

  • 19'

    CONVERSION, REDS, HEGARTY! 7-7: Hegarty levels the scores for the Reds.

  • 18'

    TRY, REDS, SPEIGHT! 7-5: Brilliant set play! The ball is given to Lucas and popped to Speight, who goes over under the posts against his old team. He has now scored against every opposing team in Super Rugby!

  • 17'

    The Brumbies are penalised for offside and this one is very kickable, but the Reds go for touch instead of having a shot at posts.

  • 13'

    The Brumbies are penalised for standing up in the scrum and the Reds set up the lineout just inside the hosts' 22, but they lose the ball from there. A rare opportunity is squandered.

  • 12'

    A little bit of a scuffle breaks out between the sides, but nothing major. McDermott has the put in at the scrum for the Reds.

  • 9'

    NO TRY! Simone gives the ball to Wright, who goes on a marauding run, heaping pressure on the Reds once more. Wright then looks to finish the job off, but he was tackled before propelling himself forward and spilling the ball. Still 7-0.

  • 6'

    CONVERSION, BRUMBIES, LOLESIO! 7-0: Lolesio gets on the scoreboard with a simple kick.

  • 5'

    TRY, BRUMBIES, SIMONE! 5-0: The Brumbies work the ball out to Simone and he goes over for the try!

  • 4'

    The Reds halt the driving maul, but then they're penalised for joining the ruck incorrectly. The Brumbies go for the corner again.

  • 2'

    The Brumbies win a penalty and set up the attacking lineout. They might go for the driving maul.

  • 1'

    Referee AJ Jacobs blows his whistle and the Brumbies kick off. Super Rugby 2020 is underway in New Zealand and now in Australia.
