It’s hard to say what the best thing about tonight was.

    — The jinking running lines?
    — Big Noodles running rampant?
    — The passing out of contact?
    — The six tries?
    — The second string players standing up?
    — The power and pace?

It was a great night to be a Brumbies fan as they scored six tries and won 39-17

Foxports has the match report.

The Brumbies have qualified for the Super Rugby finals for the first time in nine years after beating Melbourne Rebels 39-17 at Canberra Stadium.

The six-try bonus point victory gives the ACT franchise virtually an unassailable lead over nearest Australian conference rivals Queensland Reds, and can’t be overtaken by the seventh-placed Auckland Blues.

It’s the first time the Brumbies have qualified for the Super Rugby finals since winning the competition in 2004.

Hopefully Nic White’s injury will be minor.

But if they play like that against the Lions it will be a hell of a night!
