Hurricanes too good for Brumbies

This was a live score update







The Hurricanes will be a on a high after last week and having won three on the trot. The Brumbies are always tough to beat at home but last week they went down to the Waratahs after being 10-17 up at the break. That can be put down largely to inexperience.
