  • FULL TIME - A free flowing and high scoring contest comes to an end at GIO Stadium!  With a try in the opening minute of the second half, the Sunwolves were right in the contest after half time.  The Brumbies steadied with three tries in quick succession and that proved to be enough though the Sunwolves were never far away.  After 80 minutes in Canberra, the Brumbies have kept alive their finals' aspirations with a 41-31 bonus point victory over the Sunwolves.

    '
  • The Sunwolves maybe out of contention for the finals but they will be desperate to add to their tally of two wins this afternoon.  Despite a heavy loss last week, their recent form has been good with wins over the Reds and the Stormers showing that the Japanese based side can hold their own in Super Rugby.
    '
  • Despite a largely disappointing campaign to date, the Brumbies remain an outside chance for a play-offs with victory a non-negotiable this afternoon.  They will be full of confidence after recording a gutsy victory over the Bulls in Pretoria last week.
    '
  • Welcome to GIO Stadium in Canberra where an abbreviated week 16 of Super Rugby concludes with the clash between the Brumbies and the Sunwolves.
