    Blow: Tatafu Polota-Nau of the Waratahs leaves the field with an fractured forearm.

    A great fightback from a determined Waratahs outfit that are starting to play like they believe in their title crudentials. Berrick Barnes' impact was immense as was Michael Hooper. A terrible injury to Tatafu Polota-Nau who has fractured his forearm that should rule him out of the Lions tour depending on the injury's severity.

    For the Brumbies, they couldn't put the match to sleep and didn't control the Tahs backs at critical points in the match. Henry Speight and George Smith were their best on pitch. George Smith looks set for a stint on the sideline with a knee injury.

    Brumbies captain Ben Mowen after the match: "The game just needed someone to grab tit by the scruff of the neck. Berrick did that perfectly for the Waratahs tonight. He controlled things and put them on the front foot. When the game's in the balance you've got to take it and run with it"

    Waratahs captain Dave Dennis after the match: "That was a really pleasing win. We were probably off in a few areas... The Brumbies are a good side and were always going to defend well. To get that win it's a really good result for our club and the supporters."

    Lineout Brumbies who secure the ball and drive for the line. They panic drive beyond the ball carrier. Scrum Waratahs. That should do it.
    FULLTIME: Waratahs 28 Brumbies 22
    What an upset here. The Waratahs remarkable run continues after what was a match that Berrick Barnes had a huge influence on.

    Remarkably, this is the first scrum of the half - coming four minutes from fulltime.

    73rd minute: Peter Beetham scores his fourth try of the season. Beetham ran onto a flat cut-out pass from Foley and streaks over the line. Berrick Barnes converts.
    Waratahs 28 Brumbies 22.

    Try Waratahs. Berrick Barnes loops around Hooper throws a dummy and rolls over the line under pressure from Mogg. Good determination to drive for the line rather than offloading to Mitchell.
    Waratahs 21 Brumbies 22

    Henry Speight has been dominant for the Brumbies in defence. He's been immense today. Shame he isn't eligable to play for the Wallabies against the Lions.

    Penalty Brumbies as Henry Henry Speight tackles Folau and follows through with an expert drive.  Mogg converts fro the sideline as poor discipline is exploited by the Brumbies. The Waratahs need to regain some composure and get some possession.
    Waratahs 16 Brumbies 22

    George Smith goes off with what looks like a knee injury. Colby Faingaa comes on in his stead.

    Penalty Brumbies as Tahs attempt to enter the ruck from the side. Poor penalty to concede. Jesse Mogg converts with a great kick from 48 metres as Tevita Kuridrani returns to the field. Brumbies retain the lead.
    Waratahs 16 Brumboes 19.

    Confirmed  - Polota-Nau has a fractured forearm. He should miss at least 6 weeks. Terrible news for Polota-Nau, Waratahs and the Wallabies.

    54th min: Berrick Barnes with a beautifully shaped banana kick to gain ground in the kicking battle with the Brumbies. Barnes gets better by the minute.

    50th min: Penalty Brumbies. Great rummaging from the veteran George Smith who won the ball expertly and milked the penalty. Great second half of football.
    Waratahs 16 Brumbies 16

    Penalty Waratahs. Tevita Kuridrani sin binned for 10 minutes for hands in the ruck. Berrick Barnes converts.
    Waratahs 16 Brumbies 13.

    All Brumbies in the second half. THey are a differnet side playing with conviction and purpose. THe Brumbies are content to slow the play the ball down.

    Surely Berrick Barnes should be starting. He gives the Waratahs that extra flair they need in attack. Should he be a Wallaby? That's another question. What do you think?

    43rd minute: Try Waratahs. Great cut-out ball from Berrick Barnes to Hooper who scores in the corner. Quick ball with pace through the hands. THe Waratahs are dangerous As long as they have good field position. Barnes converts.
    Waratahs 13 Brumbies 13.

    Another penalty for the Waratahs at the breakdown. Surely the Brumbies will get a card soon. Penalty attempt comes back off the post into a ruching Adam Ashley-Cooper's arms. Great intensity by the outside centre.

    Tough, tough going for the Waratahs at ANZ tonight. NSW lost three of its starting side before the halftime break, hooker Tatafu Polota-Nau walking off late with what looked scarily akin to a broken arm. The home side isn't helping themselves with poor restarts and shaky decision making under pressure. And the pressure is fierce, the Brumbies smothering their opponents to great effect. Anyone seen Izzy?

    He's out the back somewhere but the Brumbies haven't given him anything to take, while his opposite number Jesse Mogg has been able to crack into the game much more. The Tahs need to clean up their line out quick smart but with their best thrower and jumper (Kane Douglas)
    off the field don't expect miracles. Gulp.

    Team news for the second half: Matt Lucas and Berrick Barnes have entered the fray as has Pat McCabe for the Brumbies.

    Waratahs coach Michael Cheika: "We were trying to have a bit of a run. I think we just need to be a little more efficient around our ruck."

    Halftime: Waratahs 6 Brumbies 13
    Two tries to nil so far with the Brumbies showing more composure in attack and defence. They look more polished than the Waratahs who have been weakened by two key injuries to Polota-Nau and Kane Douglas.

    Drew Mitchell on the sidelines: "We're probably lacking a bit of clarity coming out of our own half. Obviously the kick contributed to a try straight off my boot, we've just got to seek a bit of clarity and once we do that and stay disciplined then we're in this."

    38th min: Totafu Polota-Nau could have broken his arm here. The Wallaby hooker appeared to buckle after coming into contact with Henry Speight's shin bone. That looks like bad news for the Waratahs and the Wallabies.
    Waratahs 6 Brumbies 13

    24th min: Try to Tevita Kuridrani of the Brumbies. Tevita Kuridrani charged down a Drew Mitchell kick. The winger took way too long to kick the ball. Great pressure from the Brumbies however. THe ball from the scrum was misdirected and found the ground before finding its way to Mitchell who should probably have taken the tackle rather than kick. Conversion missed.
    Waratahs 6 Brumbies 13

    32nd min: Pressure from the Waratahs brings out the best on the Brumbies defence. McKibbin lands awkwardly after being monstered from behind by the Brumbies defence collecting a stray touch from a lineout. He looks injured.

    29th min: Penalty Waratahs right in front. An easy three points for Brendan McKibbon as the Waratahs finally gain some good field position.
    Waratahs 6 Brumbies 8

    28th min: George Smith's defence is impeccable. The veteran may have been penalised a couple of times already but his positioning and defence is sublime.

    26th min: Jesse Mogg runs over Waratahs captain Dave Dennis. The Waratahs captain was caught daydreaming as the Brumbies fullback streaks through the Tahs line. Solid tackle by Israel Folau and Drew Mitchell. Stephen Moore forward pass. Waratahs escape punishment.
    Waratahs 3 Brumbies 8

    22nd min: Try Brumbies. Number 8 Ben Mowen bulldozes his way over the line. The captain had a good low drive to evade the Waratahs defence. Despite all the Waratahs posession, it's the Brumbies that have had the better field position. Conversion unsuccessful.
    Waratahs 3 Brumbies 8

    20th min: Crunching hit from Timani on Moore. Bone-cruncher. the match is starting to increase in intensity.

    17th min: Matt Toomua puts in a delicate kick in behind the Waratahs line that finds touch inside the Waratahs 10 yard line. Good vision by the fly-half.  The Waratahs overthrow the lineout and win a scrum. Can they capitalise on their good field position?

    10th min: Three penalties a piece so far in this match. The ref, Steve Walsh, is making his presence felt, determined to keep the breakdown clean.

    9th min: Penalty Waratahs. Right on halfway. Brendan McKibbin could square the ledger. And he does so with a sweetly timed kick. Both kickers have their radar tuned for this one. The game has yet to open up. Both sides are sizing eachother up with the ref halting play at avery opportunity.
    Waratahs 3 Brumbies 3

    7th min: Michael Hooper panalised at the breakdown. The Brumbies given an early chance to claim three points.
    Chris Lealiifano converts the penalty.
    Waratahs 0 Brumbies 3

    The Michael Hooper vs George Smith battle will be intriguing tonight. Winning the ball at the breakdown will be crucial in this match.

    Kane Douglas has suffered a heavy head-knock and has been helped form the field after his first and what will be his only touch of the ball. Doubt he even knows what time it is. Unlucky for the second rower who has been in such fine form along with Sitaleki Timani in the Waratahs second row.

    Welcome to thew Waratahs vs Brumbies blog. The Waratahs have revived their season of late having won three on the trot while the Brumbies have been the model of consistency this season and comfortably lead the Australian conference.

    Round seven of the Shute Shield was completed earlier today with the following results.

    Steve Samuelson writes: The Brumbies have won the last three clashes in this derby but face a far more confident Tahs team than the one they belted 35-6 in March. Drew Mitchell (wing) and Paddy Ryan (prop) will start for the Tahs, while Scott Fardy is back from injury for the Brumbies.

    AAP writes: It’ll be lights out for the Waratahs if they slip up in the most significant Australian derby of the season. Wallabies coach Robbie Deans is sure to be in the stands on the eve of his squad naming for the looming Lions series as a host of hopefuls go head-to-head in key individual match-ups. Most notably, NSW revelation Israel Folau will be jousting Brumbies fullback Jesse Mogg for the Wallabies No.15 jumper, while the front-row battle could also prove decisive at the selection table. But with the Waratahs already playing sudden-death rugby and the Brumbies clinging to their conference lead over the Queensland Reds, national selection is unlikely to be the prime motivating factor for these two arch rivals.

    WARATAHS:  Israel Folau, Cam Crawford, Adam Ashley-Cooper, Rob Horne, Drew Mitchell, Bernard Foley, Brendan McKibbin, Wycliff Palu, Michael Hooper, Dave Dennis (capt), Kane Douglas, Sitaleki Timani, Paddy Ryan, Tatafu Polota-Nau, Benn Robinson. Reserves: John Ulugia, Sekope Kepu, Will Skelton, Mitchell Chapman, Matt Lucas, Berrick Barnes, Peter Betham.

    BRUMBIES: Jesse Mogg, Henry Speight, Tevita Kuridrani, Christian Lealiifano, Joseph Tomane, Matt Toomua, Nic White, Ben Mowen (capt), George Smith, Peter Kimlin, Sam Carter, Scott Fardy, Ben Alexander, Stephen Moore, Scott Sio. Reserves: Siliva Siliva, Ruan Smith, Fotu Auelua, Colby Faingaa, Ian Prior, Pat McCabe, Robbie Coleman
