The ACT Brumbies adopted a new attacking mindset to start the Super Rugby season, but it was the Queensland Reds’ gritty defence which won out on an opening-round arm-wrestle at Canberra Stadium.
The Reds secured just their third win in Canberra in Super Rugby history, scoring a 77th minute try to clinch a 27-17 win on Saturday night.
