Planet Rugby informs us of the Brumbies’ thrilling draw against the Wellington Hurricanes last night at the Stadium in Bruce.
While Julian Huxley got man of the match it sounds like the forwards are finally producing the goods.
In a highly physical encounter, the Brumbies’ pack went blow for blow against their larger opponents with captain Alister Campbell and back row forward Jone Tawake leading the way. Flanker Peter Kimlin, a member of the Brumbies Academy, produced another impressive performance following a strong showing against the Waratahs last Saturday.
