As it happened | Chiefs v Brumbies

The win for the Brumbies snapped a 0-8 losing streak for Australian teams against foreign opposition in this year's tournament.

The Brumbies won 26-14 after leading 19-0 at half-time.

The Brumbies scored four tries through fullback Tom Banks, wing Solomone Kata and a brace by No 8 Pete Samu. Rookie flyhalf Noah Lolesio added three conversions.

The Chiefs replied with two tries by flyhalf Aaron Cruden and centre Anton Lienert-Brown. Fullback Damian McKenzie was on target with both conversions.

The Brumbies picked up four points for their victory to extend their lead atop the Australian Conference. They remained in third place in the Overall standings.

Chiefs coach Warren Gatland will have been seething as his charges created more than enough chance in the second half alone to snatch the victory, but time after time they took the wrong option. The home side left empty-handed to lose their unbeaten start to the season and remained second in the New Zealand Conference and fourth in the Overall log.

In next weekend's Round 5 action, both the Brumbies and Chiefs will enjoy a bye.
