Brumbies lead at 1/2 time

  • Brumbies lead at 1/2 time

The ACT Brumbies have played out an attacking and energetic first half, racing to a big 22-10 half time lead against the Waikato Chiefs in their Super Rugby qualifying final at Canberra Stadium.

It has mostly been one way traffic so far at the home of the Brumbies, who had kept the Chiefs try-less until two minutes before half time.

The visitors have simply struggled for clean ball, field position, and any chance to score in the match, and will need to fill the holes in their defence if they are a chance to come back in this game.

Inside centre Bundee Aki was their sole try-scorer of the half.

For the Brumbies it has been a surprisingly energetic game thus far, but it is evidence of how desperate they are to go through this finals series.

And, of course, to get their grand final vengence of last year in this rematch of the championship game from last season.

Nic White and Matt Toomua have been superb in the halves, but without the forwards having had to do too much work, have utilised spreding the ball to their attacking weapons of Robbie Coleman, Henry Speight, Tevita Kuridrani and Jesse Mogg.

They have all found space with ease, and that is how the score is how it is.

White was the first to score in the 10th minute from close range, while a sprinting Jesse Mogg found space just a minute later and found Coleman who dived over.

The Chiefs then cleaned up for a bit, but again Mogg found himself in the action, this time scoring in the right hand corner.
