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.
