Sensational Brumbies smash through the records to beat the Bulls at Loftus

By johnboy - 28 July 2013 8

Foxsports has the wondrous news about the Brumbies nail biting win in Pretoria over night.

THE Brumbies have won through to their first Super Rugby final in nine years after centre Tevita Kuridrani scored a last ditch try to sink the Bulls 26-23 in Pretoria.

It’s the first time the Bulls have lost a Super Rugby finals match at their South African home.

The Bulls turned down three penalty goals to kick for the corner while one point up in the final 13 minutes as the Brumbies’ staunch defence held them out.

It took a message from Bulls coach Frans Ludeke to take the three points when they were offered for a fourth time in the 76th minute on Saturday night.

However the Brumbies obtained good territory off the resulting kick-off and flyhalf Matt Toomua busted the line to send Kuridrani over in the 79th minute, TMO Shaun Veldsman ruling there was no forward pass in the lead up.

If you want to hear the lamentation of the women coming out of South Africa then Keo is worth a read.

Two fantastic finals this weekend, the Brumbies into the Grand Final in Hamilton next Saturday at 5.30pm.

And put Mad Monday into your calendar for 5 August.

Win lose or draw we all owe the Warrior Priest Ben Mowen a drink.

Lamentations 1
King James Version (KJV)

1 How doth the city sit solitary, that was full of people! how is she become as a widow! she that was great among the nations, and princess among the provinces, how is she become tributary!

2 She weepeth sore in the night, and her tears are on her cheeks: among all her lovers she hath none to comfort her: all her friends have dealt treacherously with her, they are become her enemies.

I was thinking of this bit of the Conan franchise.

I wants star!

Some of the comments at the Keo site are gold. ‘Not a Boks arse’, for example.

And call me strange, but I think quite a deal of the South African lamentation is from the boofier sex.

I think ‘lamentation of the women’ is a Conan reference rather a statement of fact

I was gutted to this match. Perhaps unsurprisingly, there aren’t any pubs in Swtizerland that show the rugby. I’ll be in Venice for the final. I really hope somewhere is showing it. While Italy do play rugby, I don’t really see it being Venice’s thing.

Well worth sitting up to watch. Even more inspiring that they did it against two fairly dubious touch judges. Metres stripped off kicks into touch, dubious out on the full calls and one blatant ball that was kicked out by a Bull and ruled to have come off the Brumbies. Great win!!

Haven’t had a chance to watch the game so no idea what, if any influence the refs had on the game. However I do find it odd that the field ref, the touch judges and the TMO were ALL South African. I thought with big games, even at Super rugby level the field ref at least was meant to be from a 3rd party country, but having all 4 from the ‘home’ country is a bit rich.

The final is on at such a civilised time!

The heartening thing is that unlike their tryless performance against the cheetahs they crossed the line twice against the bulls and on that performance are looking good to beat the chiefs.
