    ACT Brumbies v Queensland Reds

    Date

    The ACT Brumbies take on the Queensland Reds at Canberra Stadium.

    Sort posts by:

    Come back soon  Christian

    The Brumbies missed the ultra cool goal kicking of their injured Wallabies centre Christian Lealiifano. They had several opportunities to level the scores from the kicking tee, but Mogg couldn’t convert. Lealiifano was a rock with his goal kicking for the Brumbies and the Wallabies last year, kicking several crucial goals. He had ankle surgery at the end of the Wallabies European spring tour last year and will be out until mid-March, with a hoped return against the NSW Waratahs. The Brumbies could’ve done with him on Saturday night.


    The best-dressed waterboy ever

    Brumbies coach Stephen Larkham caused a SANZAR stir when The Canberra Times revealed he would be running the water for the Brumbies this season, while Director of Rugby Laurie Fisher sat in the box. It resulted in a backflip Greg Louganis would have been proud of. It meant Larkham was no longer allowed to run the water as some other Super Rugby coaches claimed it wasn’t fair. So instead of wearing a trackie, Larkham had to sport the official team suit and he was restricted to patrolling the side line.


    Cooper takes early lead over Toomua

    If Saturday night was an early audition for the Wallabies No.10 jersey then Cooper put a fair bit of distance between himself and Matt Toomua. Cooper was pulling the strings like a puppet master in the season opener, throwing cut-out passes at will. His kicking boot was also singing a pretty tune as he nailed almost everything. Cooper flicked it wide for Turner to score the Reds’ first try of the season. But Toomua struggled to get any room at all and when he did he didn’t have much choice but kick for field position. The Reds defence played a large part in that. Every time Toomua touched the ball they were in his face, giving him absolutely no room.


    Brumbies boss does some temping

    The Brumbies have a new chief executive, but only temporarily. Former Prime television boss and Brumbies board member Doug Edwards has been appointed interim club chief executive. The Brumbies announced the decision at the pre-match function and told staff and players on Thursday last week. Edwards has been on the Brumbies’ board for a decade and steps in to fill the hole left by Andrew Fagan. For the past two months the Brumbies have been operating without a boss. Edwards will start on Monday. It’s good timing given the Brumbies were working their way through a membership bungle for the round-one game. About 1000 members didn’t get their tickets for the opening match. The Brumbies have been working for almost a month to rectify the problem.


    Courage Patty

    Any doubt about Pat McCabe’s courage were put the rest when he left the field at the end of the first half with blood pouring from his head. He copped the knock when he put his neck on the line in a solid tackle on halfway. McCabe was playing his first game since June last year. The hard-nosed centre has broken his neck twice since November 2011. The 20-Test Wallaby considered quitting rugby after breaking his neck the first time. There were more concerns his career was over when he broke his neck again against the British and Irish Lions last year. He has also battled knee and hamstring injuries and was knocked out in his comeback in a trial match last month. Brumbies prop Ben Alexander described McCabe as the bravest players he’s played with.


    Fro Bros living on the edge

    Both the Fro Bros, Henry Speight and Joe Tomane, showed their blistering pace early in the game to get breaks. Tomane had a stunning burst down the left wing and if it wasn’t for Reds fullback Aidan Toua’s blinding speed he would’ve scored the opening try of the game. But the Fro Bros were also very quick to come off their wings in defence. It opened it up for the Reds to exploit the space out wide. It played a part in their first two tries. Quade Cooper found Lachie Turner with a lovely cut-out pass for the Queensland winger to dive for the corner on the right. Then on the left things opened up for Toua who blew everyone else off the park with his flying feet. That kid is quick!


    Reds (Lachie Turner, Aidan Toua, Chris Feauai-Sautia tries, Quade Cooper 2 penalties, 3 conversions) 27 bt Brumbies (Jesse Mogg try, Mogg 3, Nic White penalties) 17

    At Canberra Stadium. Crowd: 13,670.

    Referee: James Leckie


    And it's all over! Reds win 27-17.

    78: Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. Mogg drops a sitter and then fails to regather, allowing Chris Feauai-Sautia to gather and score the winning try. Cooper converts. Reds 27-17.

    74: Huge roar as Jake Schatz drops the ball inside his own 22 and the Brumbies have the scrum...

    70: The Brumbies pressing and pressing but some handling errors preventing them from cutting the margin. But they are putting the Reds under the pump despite that. Penalty! Mogg has the shot to level it...but he drags it wide. Missing Lealiifano? Reds 20-17.

    62: So Scott Sio burrows over the line, but the ref has sent it upstairs. Looks to be held up...and that's what they say. Penalty to Brumbies. They are coming hard. Reds still down a man...lineout.

    58: Quade Cooper does a lovely impersonation of my four-iron there, catching his penalty kick a bit fat, you could almost see the divot fly forward with the ball and it falls well short. Reds 20-17

    54: And Holmes had barely taken his seat in the sinbin and Mogg darted into the corner and it's game on here at Canberra Stadium. Still another 9 minutes of advantage here for the Brums. Tough kick for Mogg from the sideline and he misses. Reds 20-17.

    53: See you later! Greg Holmes pays the price for Eddie Quirk's cynical earlier penalty in a rolling maul. The ref warned the Reds and when Holmes was caught offside the ref reached for his pocket and gave him a 10-minute break. Brumbies have the man advantage now...

    50: But some ill discipline from Tevita Kuridrani, getting caught in front of the kicker, allows Cooper to restore their advantage. Andrew Smith has been ruled out for the rest of the game with concussion. Not sure what happened there. Reds 20-12.

    48: They must make kicking tees a lot heavier than they used to. Needed a quad bike to bring it out to Mogg, who knocks the penalty kick over the crossbar and it's Reds 17-12.

    So here we go for the second half. Still no McCabe as the docs staple his head back together. And the Reds straight on the attack again...now McCabe returns to the field. Hooray! Great news for lovely young man! He really is very polite  and it's great to see him back, touch wood...

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    So an entertaining first half. The Reds looking sharp, while the Brumbies were a bit rusty. Several kicking errors and a few poor defensive reads out wide have proved costly. Can they fix things for the second half? OR will Cooper give the Reds just their second victory at Canberra Stadium? Reds 17-9.

    39: McCabe's cut head has brought Tevita Kuridrani on, so the centres pairing is Andrew Smith and Kuridrani - the combo that knocked off the British and Irish Lions last year. Now they need to knock off a very slick Reds unit...

    37: Geez Pat McCabe can't catch a break. The claret is flowing from his head after fearlessly putting his head into a tackle on the halfway line. No doubt we'll see him coming back soon wrapped up like a mummy...

    34: Cooper keeps the points ticking over for the Reds, converting a penalty and it's Reds 17-9.

    31: And Mogg taps it over. Reds 14-9.

    29: Again the Brumbies kick for the corner. Is attacking rugby back at Canberra Stadium? Now they drive a rolling maul towards the line and it leads to Jesse Mogg diving over in the corner! Ref checking the grounding, he thinks it's held up....and it is held up. But Brumbies have a penalty. Reds 14-6.

    26: Cooper finally misses a shot for goal, pulling that one to the left. Brumbies looking a bit ragged at the moment. Need some possession just to settle things down here, risk the game could get away from them...

    22: Holy Toledo Batman! Did anyone get the number plate of that speeding car? Oh, it was Aidan Toua who blasted a massive hole through the Brumbies defence and no one was ever going to catch him there. There's scorch marks on the pristine Canberra Stadium turf where he flew down the wing. Cooper taps it over. Reds 14-6.

    19: Another kicking error by White, sends the restart out on the full. Reds scrum in the centre...

    18: Great cut-out pass by Quade led to the try and he converts it, his kick clipping the inside of the right hand goal post and going over. Reds 7-6.

    17: Footsteps! Mogg drops the kickoff and it's the Reds chance to attack. What can Cooper conjure? And they go from one side of the to the other and Lachie Turner dives for the corner and scores a nice try. Brumbies caught on the the overlap there. Brumbies 6-5. Kick to come...

    15: The Brumbies employing a rotating kicking policy with the absence of Christian Lealiifano (ankle). This time Nic White has a ping from directly in front about 40m out, slots it. Brumbies 6-0

    The ACT Brumbies have appointed former Prime television boss Doug Edwards as the club’s interim chief executive.

    Edwards will start in role on Monday to give the Brumbies direction after spending the past two months without a leader.

    10: Exciting break there by Joe Tomane after Butler pounced on the loose ball midfield. Tomane the first of the fro bros to get amongst it, but he was caught by the Reds about 10m out. Not to be outdone the other fro bro Henry Speight gets a break down the right but it also comes to nothing and the Brumbies give away a penalty and the pressure is relieved...

    8: More attacking intent from the Brums already! instead of taking a penalty shot they kick for touch in the corner. Larkham making his mark already? But it leads to another penalty and Mogg from straight in front goes bang! Brumbies 3-0.

    4: Wasted opportunity by the Reds there. Nic White kicked out on full giving Reds great field position, but Quade Cooper throws a forward pass. Maybe hampered by his neck there...

    2minute: Brumbies get a penalty with the Reds offside. Jesse Mogg will have a shot from about 40m out about 5m in from touch...but he shanks it. Still 0-0

    Pat McCabe leads the Brums out, playing his 50th Super Rugby game. Has battled two broken necks and multiple other injuries in recent seasons. Hopefully he can get through unscathed and start to work back towards playing for the Wallabies again...

    Welcome to Canberra Stadium where the ACT Brumbies will play the Queensland Reds in a cracking Super Rugby season opener. Teams about to run out onto the ground. Slight southerly breeze favouring the Black Mountain end...we're about to find out if the Brumbies can back up last season under new coaching duo Stephen Larkham and Laurie Fisher!

    Some stats:

    Brumbies v Reds at Canberra Stadium, Canberra, Saturday 7.40pm

    Head to Head: Played 22 Brumbies 17 Reds 4 Drawn 1

    In Canberra: Played 12 Brumbies 10 Reds 2

    Last clash: Round 10 2013 - Reds 19 drew Brumbies 19 at Suncorp Stadium

    Richard Shute writes: Last year’s beaten finalists face a Reds side desperate to improve on last season’s disappointing finish. With Larkham and Fisher at the helm, and Pocock finally ready to return, the Brumbies are well-placed to continue where they left off.

    A well-balanced Reds squad will be looking for more consistency in 2014, and with Quade Cooper starting to look like he means business, the Reds should challenge for top spot in a tight conference. Home advantage could be the difference in a hugely meaningful battle

    AAP writes: New head coaches, new season - same old grudge rivalry. The top two Australian teams in recent years will be desperate to begin their 2014 campaign with a win over one of their main conference rivals.

    The Brumbies welcome back Wallabies stars David Pocock and Pat McCabe from long-term injuries, while centre Tevita Kuridrani returns from a five-match suspension on the bench. The Reds have given attacking livewire Aidan Toua first crack at fullback, and he’ll look to finish off any opportunities created by halves Will Genia and Quade Cooper. Their Wallaby back-ups, Nic White and Matt Toomua, will be out to prove a point, but the battle between Australia’s two best ball thieves, Pocock and Liam Gill, will take some topping.
