The ACT Brumbies have bounced back from a lazy Rebela defeat to beat the Blues 26-9 at Canberra Stadium.
The Auckland side failed to muscle up against the Brumbies dominant forwards, with their backs again taking advantage.
Queanbeyan product Robbie Coleman continued his quest to be Super Rugby's top try scorer, claiming his sixth in seven games.
While the lowest crowd this millenium turned out in wet weather, the game had the interest of Benji Marshall returning to Australia for the first time.
The Brumbies returned to their composed selves against a better side on paper than the Rebels a week ago.
The game caps another inconsistency for the Blues this season, and with two wins and three wins and five losses now are in great need to stay in touch with the NZ conference.
For the Brumbies its a needed answer to a first reality check.
What do Brumbies fans think of that??
Are they back to form?
