  • FULL TIME; BRUMBIES 8, CRUSADERS 21 - It's all over at GIO Stadium and a scoreless second half for both sides has seen the Crusaders still do enough to hang on. With the Brumbies not creating any real potent threats with their attack, the Crusaders were happy to bank on their rock solid defence which repelled anything the hosts could throw at them. The Crusaders with a confident and comfortable enough 13 point win on the road.

  • The Crusaders are the second-best team in the competition when it comes to tries scored from their opponents 22 with 18 scored from this range. This is only bettered by the Lions who have scored 25 from the same distance.
    73''
  • The Brumbies also boast the worst success rate when it comes to goal-kicking this season, sitting at a paltry 54%. The Crusaders fare much better in the category with a 76% success rate with the boot.
    68''
  • The Brumbies average only 21.5 points per game this current campaign compared to 30.5 points by the Crusaders. With 27 minutes to run in Canberra, the Brumbies need to start addressing this if they're any chance of taking the points tonight.
    63''
  • In what has been a dour and penalty-riddled second half, Barrett now has his marching orders after repeated infringements as he's caught offside at the maul. With an opportunity to add three points to the mix, this is turned down as the Brumbies pack a scrum.
    57''

  • Crotty busts through the line but he is quickly caught by the Brumbies defence as the visitors look to extend their lead. Crusaders already looking dangerous with a little under five minutes played in the second stanza.

  • HALF TIME; BRUMBIES 8, CRUSADERS 21 - We're done for the first half at GIO Stadium and this one has been a showcase of just how explosive and amazing the Crusaders can be in attack. With their scrum and line-out dominant, the visitors have fed off the back of some prime field position and at the interval, have a handy 13-point break on the Brumbies..

  • Hands in the ruck from Todd sees the hosts able to post their first points since the opening minutes as Hawera steps up. With 25 metres to work with, Hawera guides over the extras on offer and helps to reduce the margin to 13 points.

  • Delany's again on the money as he lines up 15 metres inside the right sideline with his latest conversion. Again with a solid strike, the ball is whipped over the crossbar and the Crusaders are running away with this one. They lead it by 16 with four minutes remaining in the half.

  • Amazing broken play once again from the visitors as a short ball from Todd finds Tamanivalu who gallops straight through the defensive line. With a looped ball to his right finding Mataele, the latter immediately steps back infield to wrongfoot three defenders before finding chalk from 18 metres out.

  • The angles are all correct on this one from Delany as he lines up just inside the right sideline. Struck sweetly, the ball curls towards the middle and never deviates once heading towards the black dot. Crusaders move their lead out to 9.

  • Too much open space to work with on this occasion as Havili and Bateman combine through the middle. Quick to read the passage, Mataele fans himself out wide in order to take the final pass which he glides over with in the right corner. Crusaders starting to turn it on now.

  • The signs were there and warnings were issued as Sio is now penalised for being offside after a slew of penalties against the hosts. With no other option available, Referee Peyper sends Sio on his way for 10 minutes for repeated team infringements.

  • No mistake made and nor should there be as Delany lines up almost directly in front. Taking all the time allocated to him, the ball is stroked through the middle and after being behind early, the Crusaders now take an almost customary lead. It's the visitors by two points..

    16''
  • Brumbies joy is shortlived as the slick attacking machine that is the Crusaders manages to hit straight back. With play opening up on their 22, a wide spread of the ball sees Hall feeding Barrett before his inside ball is worked to Bateman who charges straight and finds the tryline from 12 metres out.

  • Hawera's not too hapy with his first up effort of the night as he sets up five metres inside the right sideline. Slewing off the boot, the ball is across the face and narrowly misses its intended target. Brumbies with a rapid fire start though as they lead it by five.
    10''
  • CONVERSION MISSED BRUMBIES! (Wharenui Hawera). BRUMBIES 5, CRUSADERS 0.
    8''
  • BANG! Rapid fire start from the Brumbies as slick hands see the ball fed down their right side. With a short ball turned quickly to Speight, he manages to pin his ears back before haring off down the sideline to find the chalk. The hosts shock the Crusaders and will play from in front tonight..
