Brumbies boost championship hopes

Christian Lealiifano’s boot finished off the Hurricanes play-off prospects.

The Brumbies withstood a late rally from the home team to win 30-23 and consolidate their position as Australia’s leading Super Rugby team in 2013.

Both teams scored two tries but Lealiifano punished the Canes ill-discipline with six penalties and he finished the match with 20 points.

The Brumbies led 18-14 at half-time.

Brumbies – Tries: Nic White, Peter Kimlin. Conversion: Christian Lealiifano. Penalties: Lealiifano (6).
Hurricanes – Tries: Reynold Lee-Lo, TJ Perenara. Conversions: Beauden Barrett (2). Penalties: Barrett (3).
