Brumbies turn in a blinder in Melbourne

A brutal, thumping, dominating, effort by the Brumbies in Melbourne obliterated the Rebels tonight.

Who would have thought Ben Mowen would have the speed to outrun a winger?

Foxsports has the story:

The Rebels led 13-12 at halftime but they were starved of ball in the second stanza and injuries to their attacking maestros James O’Connor and Kurtley Beale cruelled their chances as the Brumbies piled on 18 unanswered points.

It’s their sixth consecutive win away from home.

I give it 9 out of 10. Well played gentlemen!

Very early in the season going by what last season taught us.

I believe Mowen is peaking as he has found the happy medium between bulk and natural weight giving him optimum strength and agility/speed.

Looking promising with a long way to go.

and how isn’t Mowen in contention for the Wallabies side?

Great performance. 0 points against in 2nd halves so far this season. How good is it to have the best coach in the world coaching our team… Let’s just hope we can hold on to him for a while longer.

Loved the way Coleman ran at Beale’s injured shoulder!
