Player of the round: Fotu Auelea. The Brumbies have cleverly used their No.8, relying on his big charge up fields to build momentum. Had an excellent first half against the Lions.

Try of the round: Ben Alexander. Discovered the joys of backing up by following Michael Hooper down the field as he went on a 60-metre run, being in the right spot to take the pass to score.
