The Highlanders stole a Super Rugby victory from the Brumbies in Canberra, scoring a converted try in the 84th minute to win 23-22 on Saturday night.


The Brumbies coughed up the ball with 15 seconds remaining and it ended their 10-game winning run at home as the Highlanders made it five straight victories against the ACT men.

Brumbies hooker Folau Faingaa scored a hat-trick of rolling maul tries but it wasn’t enough as they were kept scoreless with a man advantage in the second half at Canberra Stadium.

Highlanders winger Sio Tomkinson was extremely lucky to avoid a red card after making no attempt to wrap his arms as his shoulder made contact with Tom Banks’ head in a tackle.
