Welcome to the GIO Stadium in Canberra for our live coverage of this all Australian Super Rugby clash featuring the Brumbies and the Reds.
Kick-off! We are off here in Canberra.
A great start by the Brumbies, as they string seven phases together and make their way into the Reds 22, before losing it in the tackle.
The Reds secure the first penalty after the Brumbies go offside. They go for touch and will feed a line-out inside the 22.
TRY, REDS, HEGARTY! 0-5: Great work by the Reds to force a penalty at the breakdown, five metres from the Brumbies line. They find a good touch in the corner and then go wide, before Bryce Hegarty scores in the corner! Great work!
CONVERSION, REDS, HEGARTY! 0-7: He does well to convert his own try!
The Reds string six phases together, before they spill it under pressure. The Brumbies feed a scrum near the halfway line.
The Brumbies then secure a scrum penalty despite a good Reds shove. Banks finds touch inside the 22.
NO TRY, REDS! 0-7: The Reds score a try after a long run from Matt McGahan, following an interception. The final pass from Christian Lealiifano made the interception easier. However the TMO is involved and a YELLOW CARD is awarded to TUPOU, after a high-tackle on Lealiifano.
TRY, BRUMBIES. MUIRHEAD! 5-7: The Brumbies come again and string eight patient phases together before Muirhead slides in to score a good try!
The conversion is pushed wide by Christian Lealiifano.
Relief for the Reds as they secure a penalty at the breakdown six metres from their own line. Hegarty finds touch near the halfway line.
The Brumbies turn it over and then Irae Simone is penalised for being offside. The Reds go for touch only to lose the ball again after the set-piece.
Jock Campbell is into a gap and makes good ground for the Reds. Samu Kerevi takes it further, as the Reds string seven patient phases together. They then secure a penalty at the breakdown and Hegarty finds touch in the corner.
PENALTY, REDS, HEGARTY! 5-10: The Reds secure another penalty at the breakdown and this time Hegarty steps up to extend to lead for the Reds.
JP Smith is offside for the Reds and the Brumbies opt for a five metre scrum.
TRY, BRUMBIES, MCCAFFREY! 10-10: They secure another penalty after the scrum and choose to scrum again. After a few resets the Brumbies power forward and Lachlan McCaffrey scores!
CONVERSION, BRUMBIES, LEALIIFANO! 12-10: Christian Lealiifano adds the extras.
HALF-TIME: BRUMBIES 19-10 REDS. The Brumbies have a deservedly narrow lead at the break. They conceded and early try, but composed themselves to come back. We await an exciting second half and the Reds will only have 14 men for the first 10 minutes.
PENALTY TRY, BRUMBIES! 19-10: Banks finds touch in the corner after the Brumbies are awarded an offside penalty. They secure the line-out and drive forward. The referee then awards a penalty try and hands out a YELLOW CARD to Scott Higginbotham for a repeated offence.
Kick-off! We are back underway in the second half.
An attacking start to the second half by the Reds. They string five phases together, before securing a penalty at the breakdown and Matt McGahan finds touch.
TRY, BRUMBIES, ARNOLD! 24-10: The Reds secure the line-out, but then the ball is ripped away and the Brumbies lead a counter-attack. They secure an offside penalty and Banks finds touch seven metres out. The Brumbies drive forward and Rory Arnold rolls over to score! Great work!
CONVERSION, BRUMBIES, LEALIIFANO! 26-10: Christian Lealiifano adds the extras yet again.
TRY, BRUMBIES, WRIGHT! 31-10: After a poor pass from Daugunu, the ball is intercepted by Tom Wright and he runs home to score! Game over?
CONVERSION, BRUMBIES, LEALIIFANO! 33-10: Christian Lealiifano makes no mistake with the conversion.
DROP GOAL, REDS, MCGAHAN! 33-13: Matt McGahan decides to drop for goal from 40 metres and it''s over! They need seven not three!
The Reds secure a scrum penalty and they find touch outside the Brumbies 22. They mess it up yet again and the Brumbies come away with it.
It has been a rather scrappy affair in the second half. Not a good showpiece for Australian rugby.
TRY, REDS, PAIA'AUA! 33-18: Jock Campbell is into a gap for the Reds and offloads to Duncan Paia’aua, who has too much pace!
CONVERSION, REDS, HEGARTY! 33-20: Hegarty narrows the gap with a good kick.
Bryce Hegarty is into a gap after some poor Brumbies defending. The Reds then secure an offside penalty and they go for the corner.
Surprise surprise! The Reds mess up an attacking line-out and Banks boots it into touch. We have 10 minutes left.
TRY, BRUMBIES, DOUGLAS! 38-20: The Brumbies string a few phases together before Tevita Kuridrani runs at an angle and offloads to Murray Douglas, who scores!
CONVERSION, BRUMBIES, LONERGAN! 40-20: Ryan Lonergan slots a good kick.
TRY, REDS, WRIGHT! 40-25: The Reds are rewarded for persistent attacking over the last few minutes and Liam Wright storms over for a well deserved try!
CONVERSION, REDS HEGARTY! 40-27: Hegarty narrows the gap yet again.
FULL-TIME: BRUMBIES 40-27 REDS. The Brumbies top the Australian Conference after another good performance here this evening. They went to rest halfway through the second half, but then finished it off late in the game. Thank you for joining us.
