Live: Brumbies v Rebels

Join us from 7.40pm for all the action from Canberra Stadium as the Brumbies take on the Rebels in a bid to cement their first Super Rugby finals appearance since 2004.


And that's all she wrote. The Brumbies win 39-17, securing a bonus-point win and all-but wrapping up top spot in the Australian conference, ending an eight-year finals drought. Now we'll wait for scans to see if White's shoulder is ok.

80: And the siren sounds while the rebels pack down for a scrum. They're looking for one final score...

74: Just 11,055 turned up to see the Brumbies put themselves within sniffing distance of their first play-off berth since 2004 - when they also won the Super Rugby title. The Reds will need to beat the NSW Waratahs by about 120 points and rely on the Brumbies losing to pinch top spot in the Aussie conference and an automatic play-off spot. The Brumbies now sit on top of the Super Rugby ladder, three points ahead of the Chiefs.

69: Now the Rebels are over in what's becoming a shoot-out. Paul Alo-Emile has been credited after he burrowed over from close range. Brumbies 39-17.


64: And it's finally becoming the route that was promised from the opening exchanges, Zack Holmes goes over this time. He's also leaving the Brumbies next season to get more opportunity, back to his old club in Perth. Brumbies 39-10.

57: And that roar was Colby Faingaa scoring against his future club. When the Brumbies run the ball they look fantastic, which is probably why the crowd don't like the kicking game. Rathbone comes off, Robbie Coleman on. Brumbies 32-10.

53: For those left in Canberra and not at Bateman's, that roar you just heard was Henry Speight storming over for the Brumbies fourth try of the night. If they hold on from here that's five points and top spot on the Australian conference, unless the Reds can win by 100 points in the final round with the Brumbies losing. Brumbies 25-10.

48: Make that a reverse wobble by the Brumbies. Once again surging from the kickoff. A Henry Speight jig ends a few metres short, then the forwards did some bash and crash for a while until Toomua flicked it wide to Rathbone on the overlap and it's his second time across the stripe. Prior misses the conversion. Rathbone really has lost nothing, he's still charging like a rhino. Brumbies 18-10.


45: The Brumbies surged from the restart and had the tryline almost at their beckoning, but a wayward pass is pounced upon by the Rebels who run almost the length of the field for Tom English to score a converted try. Brumbies 13-10. Brumbies wobbling again...

43: Mogg finds his kicking raider and sinks a long penalty shot from in front almost 50m out. Brumbies 13-3.
