Brumbies beat Bulls in Canberra

This was a live score update.


Winning in Canberra for an away team is never easy for a visiting team. Last week’s victory was all about winning for their team mate Shawn Mackay who passed away.


The funeral was held this week and we think that last week could be the start of a charge towards the play off for the Brumbies.


On 22 points the Brumbies can still make the play offs so they still have plenty to play for.
